About

 

 

— Citizen Artist St. Louis is a non-partisan initiative of St. Louis-based artists, organizers, and civically engaged individuals and organizations working together to ensure that arts and culture, and the values of these constituents are considered in St. Louis politics and policy-making.

We aim to evaluate the assets and needs of the arts and cultural community and combine our strengths across the City of St. Louis to provide mutual support and leverage our power for political change at a city-wide, state, and national level.

Goals

01. Identify the core values of the arts and cultural community and present these values in a clear and meaningful way to politicians and city-officials in order to hold them accountable.

02. Advocate that every St. Louisan has access to arts and culture in their communities and connect them to resources.

03. Ensure that artistic and cultural expression is seen by city leadership as an essential part of the health and vibrancy of our communities

Origins

Citizen Artist St. Louis was inspired by the work of organizers and artists in Baltimore and the US Department of Arts and Culture Platform. We are artists, designers, architects, makers, tinkerers, organizers, and cultural workers. Interested in joining the organizing committee? Email us at citizenartiststl@gmail.com.
