About Citizen Artist Baltimore
Baltimore is home to thousands of voters who are also artists, theater, concert, and museum-goers, and creative workers. They care about core civic issues like public safety and education but our votes will also be strongly impacted by the Baltimore City Council and Mayor. Citizen Artist Baltimore (CAB) is a grassroots, nonpartisan initiative of coalition building and community engagement aimed at combining the strengths and addressing the needs of arts and culture communities across the entire city. CAB conducted a series of listening sessions across Baltimore City from which we identified the top priorities of Baltimore’s creative communities. Leading up to the 2016 election, we registered voters and provided the opportunity for mayoral candidates to outline their positions and goals related to arts, culture and humanities through a robust questionnaire and candidate forum.
CAB looks forward to working with the mayor and city council on supporting the strengths and needs of Baltimore’s many creative communities.
