For two years I was co-chair of the Vancouver municipal political party, the Coalition of Progressive Electors. I sat on the executive for four. http://cope.bc.ca/
I've always been a political artist, and want more artists to be involved in politics - it seems to me that we have a lot of the collaborative and performance skills necessary to galvanize people and negotiate endless meetings. But I think we hold ourselves above it - too dirty, too complicated. And I think we should stop. This is a piece I wrote about that:
I'm currently co-chair of the city of Vancouver's Arts and Culture Policy Council, a body appointed by, advising, and reporting to Vancouver City Council on arts and culture issues relevant to municipal jurisdiction. We're the inaugural council with a term that goes 2011-14.
