This IMAGINING is meant to catalyze community action and connection as well as contribute to the larger vision for the U.S. Department of Arts and Culture. Taken together, the 17 unique “Imaginings” from this pilot phase will source ideas, images, and stories that will inform the USDAC’s policy platform and next steps.

About the U.S. Department of Arts and Culture

Launched on October 5th, 2013, in the midst of the government shutdown, the USDAC has no federal line item, office in Washington D.C., or official governmental status.  Rather, the USDAC is the new people-powered department dedicated to cultivating the empathy and imagination we need to create the world we wish to inhabit.  Radically inclusive, useful and sustainable, and vibrantly playful, the USDAC aims to harness the power of art and culture to engage millions in envisioning and creating a more just and sustainable world.  It does this by sparking local initiatives, connecting people and ideas across sites, and sourcing, articulating, and activating visions for new national-scale policies and programs.
