Democracy & Voice
November 10, 2020
Where do we go from here? What is the democracy of the future?
A week after the U.S. presidential election, we were unsure of what the headlines would say, but we knew we’d be living in a country in need of healing.
We invited the artists and the preachers, the innovators and the academics to remind us: Who is the “we” in ‘we the people?’ What do we owe each other? When can the healing start?
With Unfinished partner, Aspen Ideas, we stitch together live segments, dynamic films and provoking performances to showcase lived experience, creative expression, and real-world candor. Through conversations, exchanges and roundtable discussions, experts join everyday voices on a nuanced exploration of possibility and discovery.
