On Saturday, November 14th, WonderRoot hosted its first DEBATE & DRAW event, where makers, doers, and thinkers were invited to assemble at the WonderRoot Community Arts Center and watch the 2016 presidential debates while creating artwork. Participants watched the debate in real time on a large projection screen and were provided space and materials to draw, color, paint, collage, or whatever else suited their tastes. It was a full house at the Arts Center!
Operating as an open access forum, DEBATE & DRAW aims to foster discussion and awareness around local and national issues while getting folks engaged in and mobilized for the upcoming elections.
DEBATE &DRAW will continue as the subsequent debates take place for both Democratic and Republican parties. Beer, wine, and non-alcoholic drinks will be provided. In addition, an assortment of drawing materials will be available for use for folks that show up empty handed.
We’d love to see you for the next debate! #DEBATEandDRAW
