Getting to the ART of what matters in the Canadian federal election, come down to Cafe Cempoal Calavera Negra in Halifax, Nova Scotia, on the morning of Saturday, September 19, 2015 and work with artist in residence Jason Skinner to create collages of what issues matter most to you.
Anyone of any age is welcome between 10am and 12pm to work with Jason. Rather than politicians making promises and the media reporting them, Tomorrow will report on public issues, through community art. This isn’t a partisan idea and we don’t want party or politician messages; it’s about trying to express what’s important through art and relaying that message to other voters and candidates through Tomorrow.
This meets our core principle commitment to promoting responsible debate and mediation, and also furthers our work earlier this year to develop new approaches to election reporting. Journalism doesn’t need to follow politicans – it needs to lead with what’s really going on the community.
Stay tuned for full coverage of #artpoli this weekend.
