This project will provide an opportunity for groups all over Wisconsin to share their great work as part of a statewide community-building tour and traveling exhibit. The goal is to inspire grassroots collaboration, motivate voters, and help us build a stronger united statewide movement for peace, justice, sustainability, and DEMOCRACY.
The Building Unity “UnityMobile” will visit over 30 communities across WI over the three straight months that it will be on the road. Its mixed media traveling exhibit of artwork, photographs, videos, presentations and more will grow as it adds in-person interviews with the people it visits across Wisconsin. We plan to take a great deal of video of the tour and hope to make a documentary about this project when it is over.
Partnering organizations are invited to contribute any kind of creative expression that illustrates examples of participatory democracy. This is a great opportunity for groups to share their work and expand their sphere of collaboration around the state. We also welcome simple endorsements and any kind of help with publicizing the tour.
Any cosponsoring groups will have the opportunity to share any financial proceeds received on the tour.
The tour will also build hope and offer community building opportunities for people of all ages and walks of life. Our stops will include opportunities for different groups to find each other, work together, to build the social and political infrastructure necessary to increase our grassroots power for a peaceful, just and sustainable democracy.
*** All expressions within our traveling exhibit need to be strictly non-partisan. No pieces shown or performances or talks given at any of the events associated with this tour will endorse a candidate or party. All contributions to the tour must be shared in a non-partisan way so that we protect the 501(c)3 status of all of our partners.
