The members of Imagining America advance a vision of the world in which publicly engaged artists, designers, scholars, students and culture workers play critical roles in enacting the promise and ideals of a democratic society. Together, at the annual gathering, we explore the power of shared identity — of understanding who we are and what we stand for, and therefore, what we are called to do.
