Make Something of the Election

Today we’re launching Election Issues, a collection of political creations to spark conversation and action, made by our community for everyone to use.

This compendium of resources is inspired by the idea that interacting with political issues in creative ways — reading, writing, dancing, singing, drawing, and more — can encourage profound reflection.

Elections aren’t just about the candidates — they’re about developing perspectives and making your voice heard. That’s why now through November 8, we’re releasing interactive issues featuring everything from activity sheets to recipes, digital zines to printable posters, voting toolkits to audio tracks that’ll help you exercise your freedom of expression and engage creatively with the election. Today we published issues from artist and author Adam J. Kurtz, designer and pie chef extraordinaire Stacey Mei Yan Fong, and the game designers behind Special Committee. All three issues are available to download and make use of right over here.

In the coming days you can expect new issues from musician Ted Leo, journalist and filmmaker Assia Boundaoui, game designer Mike Selinker, educator Sheena McFeely, graphic designer Edith Vaisberg, and many more to be announced.

We welcome you to share what you make of the election with us: | #ElectionIssues
