About the Joy of Voting

Reinvigorating a Culture of Voting

Parades, street theatre, open-air debates, and festivals – these were once part of America’s culture of voting and it’s time to revive them. With the support of the Knight Foundation, Citizen University is partnering with artists, activists, designers, and citizens in cities around the country to launch initiatives to create creative, communal experiences and rituals around local voting.

Citizen University is a national platform for fostering responsible and empowered citizenship through activation, communication, and education. They believe in the promise of a nation where more people are more literate in civic power – and more steeped in a sense of civic character. They are a recognized leader and innovator in the field of civic engagement, working at the intersection of the public, private, and independent sectors, to democratize the practice of civic power.
