VOTE joyfully

November 6 @ 12:00 pm 2:00 pm

Free

Voting is integral to a healthy democracy. However, low voter turnout, misinformation, and disillusionment are widespread. Join us for this OMCA program that will provide valuable voter information for the upcoming November 8 General Election, while centering creativity, inspiration, and joy.

Schedule 

12–2 pm  Screen Printing | Koret Plaza, Lower Level

1–2 pm  Voting Workshop | California Room, Lower Level

Starting at 12 pm at Koret Plaza, artists Lena Wolff and Hope Meng who are featured in OMCA’s Hella Feminist exhibition will conduct a screen printing activity with their graphic “VOTE” posters. The VOTE posters are part of a free public art and civic engagement project that initially began in 2017 in response to the political climate in the United States. The current posters on view in Hella Feminist were designed to urge people to vote in the 2022 midterms for meaningful reasons related to social and environmental justice. There will be free giveaways of posters and other screen printed objects. Visitors are encouraged to bring clothing, totes, or other fabric items to screenprint with the artist’s “VOTE for Democracy” design.

At 1 pm in the California Room, join us for a workshop led by Becca Horwitz, Grassroots Organizer of Planned Parenthood Advocates Mar Monte that will explore how we can center joy and community in voting. The workshop will address issues on the ballot that are vital to the health and wellbeing of our communities, aiming to demystify confusing language of some of the ballot measures while helping the public develop the tools to discern accurate information about candidates and policies.
