Created Equal Trigger Events, launched in June 2014, delivers pop up ART exhibits designed around specific themes to trigger audiences into conversations and civic action. According to new research, community arts programs are said to improve societies or “build social capital by boosting individuals’ ability and motivation to be civically engaged.” Created Equal Trigger Exhibits is designed around this guiding principle.
This is accomplished through:
- Creating a space that brings diverse people together to engage in a constructive social activity;
- Fostering and increasing trust in each other;
- Providing an effective experience of civic engagement, which triggers participants to further collective action; and
- Increasing our sense of connection to our community while increasing the scope of our social network.
Our exhibits generate many thought-provoking discussions and unique outcomes. The inaugural event, focused on The American Dream. Subsequent events focused on voting, education, success, and diversity.
