Through its forums, CITIZENARTS seeks 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 forums most often represent upper high school and university-level students, educators, public policy and culture organizations, and the business community.

Forums are presented in the US, China, India and Europe often as part of academic class curriculums and may include faculty/student lectures and panels. 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 Journey with the Giant, To the Mountaintops and A More — or Less — Perfect Union, along with the theatrical work, MARCH. Other educational documentary projects in the works include the documentaries Pacific Rendezvous, a look at the critically important relationship between China and the US as told by the people of those countries, and Whither Europe?, an exploration of Europe’s future global role. 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.
