More about 100 Days Action at Take Action! part of For Freedoms:
100 Days Action presents a series of interactive projects, installations, and events that prompt civic engagement and ask visitors to directly embody and envision the future they want to see.
The People’s Oval Office ~ Take a seat and draft your executive order!
The People’s Oval Office is a democratic space of imagination. By sitting at the desk any participant is momentarily transformed into the President. As President participants are invited to draft an executive order that will be effective immediately upon signing it. This project engages the public directly to envision a single action they feel would benefit this country at this moment in time. Every new President is given this opportunity equally regardless of sex, age, race, socioeconomic status, education, ability and immigration status.
Playing off of For Freedoms‘ use of billboards in public spaces and using green screen projections, 100 Days Action works with Emily and Katie Gui to create a platform where visitors can playfully envision their own messages about the midterm elections on billboards.
100 Days Action supported artist Alessandra Mondolfi’s artistic activation during the Climate March in September 2018. Interact with her beautiful hand-made props in front of a mural from a photo by Stebs Schinnerer
