About

CITIZENARTS is a creator of educational programming in the form of substantive, entertaining documentaries, theatrical works and books.

Through our programs, we seek to bring thought-provoking information to the dialogue about important civic, political, economic, social and cultural issues. Our ultimate goal is to engender harmonious interaction and creative thinking around sometimes contentious and complex subjects. The audience for CITIZENARTS programs most often represents university-level students, educators, public policy groups and the business community.

Our programs are presented in public forums and are frequently part of university class curriculums, lectures and panels — where they complement coursework. They are produced to spark audience discussion immediately after the presentations -- and they do! Exchanges are led by CITIZENARTS along with faculty, students and others. They explore themes presented in the programs in the context of experiences/attitudes of the audience, and are frank, impassioned and enlightening.

Programs currently being presented include the documentaries A More — or Less — Perfect Union and Journey with the Giant, and the theatrical work, MARCH. Soon to be completed is To the Mountaintops, a comparative exploration of China and India. Other educational documentary projects in the works cover key topics in the U.S., China and Europe. We are also forming collaborations with universities that enable undergraduate and graduate students to participate in CITIZENARTS projects as part of ongoing coursework.

CITIZENARTS is a non-commercial endeavor that draws inspiration and guidance from an international Advisory Council and growing corps of volunteers in the U.S., Asia and Europe. We are self-funding, independent and objective, and are not affiliated with any political, government or religious entity. Typically, we do not charge fees for our presentations. Honorariums and/or travel stipends are appreciated if funding is available.
