Call for Participants:
Post-Vote, Now What?: Participatory Prompts for Democracy

RISD students, faculty, staff and alumni are invited to lend their voices to Post-Vote, Now What?, a collective reflection on democracy, community, dialogue and where we go from here. Post-Vote, Now What? is both a storefront exhibition (at RISD’s Color Lab, 30 North Main St.) and an online publication (at, RISD’s student-led publishing platform). It asks us to respond (by Decem ber 1) to one (or more) of four prompts in words and/or images:

—How do you define/understand/experience democracy?

—What is most important for you to say right now?

—How are you fostering change, conversation and unity?

—Now what?

Multiple responses over the project’s duration are welcome; a conversation may emerge; some responses may even become prompts themselves.

Visit this Google form, where you will download a PDF on which to share your response to the prompts. Please follow the instructions there. Questions:
