About Citizen Artist Baltimore
Baltimore is home to thousands of voices and voters who are also artists, theater, concert, and museum-goers, and creative workers. We care about core civic issues like jobs, education, and affordable space. Citizen Artist Baltimore (CAB) is an advocacy effort to build community among, and mobilize thousands of voices within Baltimore City’s creative communities. 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.
Founded on grassroots coalition building and community engagement, CAB is combining the strengths and addressing the needs of arts and cultural communities across the entire city.
