• What is the history and definition of democracy?
• How does a democratic political system work?
• What conditions are necessary for democracy to work?
• How well is US and/or world democracy functioning?
• What is the relationship between capitalism and democracy?
• What is the relationship between democracy and freedom?
• How does polarization impact our democracy?
• What is your vision of a healthy democracy?

An informational Q&A about the exhibition and open call will be held via Zoom on Thursday, August 11, 2022 from 6-7pm CST. Link available on our website.
