Hi Graz
Thanks for voting!
This usually means that you are using a different email address to try and
vote than the one you are registered with.
(Yes we need to make more communicative error messages ; )
Let's take this conversation off list.


Anyone else struggling to vote?
You have 10 minutes to register https://peoplesparkplinth.org/subscribe/

but till midnight to vote!

:)

>>>>> *CultureStake* is a web app for community decision making around

>>>>>
>>>>> *For Communities *
>>>>>
>>>>> We *create* an *appetite* for culture by encouraging communities to

>>>>> For example, how might a theatre audience cast a play differently or a park
>>>>> community curate a public art exhibition?
>>>>>
>>>>> *For Cultural Organisations *
>>>>>
>>>>> We *facilitate* a deeper and richer, more open consultation with the
>>>>> communities cultural organisations work for. For example, a city council
>>>>> might need to find out which new artwork should occupy a recently vacated
>>>>> public plinth. Or an arts organisation might need to know which artist on
>>>>> their shortlist should be next summer’s blockbuster.
>>>>>
>>>>> *For All *
>>>>>
>>>>> We *create data commons* that widens the conversation about how art
>>>>> is valued by different communities around the world.
