GOOD Citizenship Task 24: Organize an Outing to a Community Arts Event #30DaysofGOOD

Support your community by being an active citizen.

Things are easier said than done, or so the old adage goes, and we couldn't agree more. That's why we do The GOOD 30-Day Challenge (#30DaysofGOOD), a monthly attempt to live better. Our challenge for February? GOOD citizenship.

Organize an outing to a community arts event.

Can the health of a community be measured by the variety of opportunities to enjoy art and culture? We think so. Small arts organizations are a breeding ground for ideas, and they need our support.

Invite a small group to attend an event at a small arts organization in your community—a lecture, performance, museum or gallery show, or reading. After the experience, discuss it with your group, ask engaging questions, and see what happens. If you feel inclined, write a letter of thanks to the arts group or donate to their efforts.

Learn how to live like a citizen at The Guiding Lights Weekend conference on creative citizenship March 8-10 in Seattle.
