#ROCKTHEVOTE #HANDOFPOWER #CARELIKECRAZY #INEQUALITY

October 9, 2014

Yes YOU have the #HANDOFPOWER and YOU can #ROCKTHEVOTE--at least when it comes to voting in the midterm elections the first Tuesday in November and getting others to vote as well.10603318_10152397967188848_4363028071704257857_n

How can YOU influence others to vote? What are your skills, gifts and abilities that YOU can use to make the world a better place?

If you can draw, you might take part in a contest like this submission from Ventura County artist Dianne Bennett.

Dianne says, “This image is created using a portion of a retblo of crowned sparrow and collaged in photoshop with other scanned hand painted shapes.”

Growing up in the 1960’s Los Angeles suburbs when orange trees outnumbered houses, Dianne watched as meadows disappeared to housing tracts and shopping malls & developed a passion for preserving wild open spaces.

“I am happy to offer this limited edition fine art print available now as part of the Vote the Environment campaign,” says Dianne. Click here to order http://gallery.votetheenvironment.org/…/crowned-sparrow-vot…

Vote the Environment is an empowering campaign by Patagonia and Creative Action Network to promote voting for candidates in the mid-term election who will push hard for clean, renewable energy, restore clean water and air and turn away from risky, carbon-intensive fuels. Purchase your print and start helping raise awareness now.

 You too can use your hand of power and create art for the campaign.

Patagonia writes that:1105X622_VTE-collection2-1

We face a great crisis: climate change, extinction, destruction of wild places – and we must all raise our voices: in our work, in our schools and, most important, at the ballot box.

Governments can act: President Obama recently ordered reduction of carbon emissions by 30% by 2030. Citizens can lead: divesting from fossil fuels is gaining momentum across college campuses. The tide is turning and we can’t stop now. Voting is an action we can all take, the ballot a place we can all be heard. That’s why we must turn out the vote for the midterm elections on Nov. 4, 2014.

Patagonia, the Creative Action Network and the Canary Project are asking artists and designers to create a collection of “Vote the Environment” designs that will be turned into buttons, stickers, prints and T-shirts. We know artists can create a sense of pride, urgency and can-do spirit for this movement.

We will print all designs that meet the following requirements and make them available for sale with 40% of the profits benefiting the artists. The campaign is open-ended but with the goal of motivating potential voters please get your designs in advance of the 2014 Midterm Elections. If you have any questions or need feedback on your work, please email us at contribute@thecreativeactionnetwork.com.

YOUR POSTER SHOULD

  • Say “Vote the Environment”; show voting as a liberating action.
  • Instill a sense of pride, urgency, solidarity and victory in environmentalism.
  • Use no more than 4 colors
  • Be a square poster (16” x 16” at 300dpi, 4800 x 4800 pixels)

I have a number ofaction.retrievefile creative and artistic students every semester, and participating in this program is an extra credit or make-up option. It also offers some possibilities for service learning ideas for the upcoming research paper–if you’re interested in this idea, let’s brainstorm!

Also sign up for Blog Action Day.

This year’s theme is #Inequality.
