Join Santa Cruz Indivisible (SCI) on Saturday, September 23, for ResistFest, a community event that uses art to foster connection between the public, artists, member activists, and SCI Issue Teams, for what we call Civic Engagement 2.0. ResistFest strives to bring people together to create art, engage in conversation, and empower people to take political action. The event will feature artwork from several local art collectives as well as over 40 local political artists and musicians.
ResistFest will take place 2–6pm on Cooper Street in downtown Santa Cruz at the Museum of Art and History (MAH) and in Abbot Square adjacent to the museum. There will be food, music, and arts-related events for both children and adults. There is no charge to attend.
We need additional support to make this event a success. Here’s how you can help to support an artist or musician, and other expenses related to art supplies, city fees, equipment and space rental, and more.
