Arts & Culture Roundtable Shares Information on the Importance of the Census

Wed 1/29 @ 9AM

The goal of the decennial census is to count every person living with the U.S. for the purpose of creating congressional districts and distributing resources that impact quality of life across the country. So you’re going to be hearing a lot about it, about the things that could be cut in Ohio (including a congressional district) if people are undercounted. The actual census starts April 1, but planning is well underway.

People in the northeast Ohio arts & culture scene tend to be heavily engaged in civic life, which is why Arts Cleveland and Cuyahoga Arts & Culture are hosting an Arts & Culture Roundtable. Dr. Nada Martinovic from the U.S. Census Bureau, and Juan Galeano, 2020 Census project director at the Cleveland Foundation will share information about the census and how people and organizations in the arts and culture sector can help ferret out hard-to-reach or reluctant-to-participate individuals.

The event takes place at the new Children’s Museum in the Midtown Corridor. If you don’t have kids or grandkids and so haven’t had the chance to see it, here’s your chance! The event is free and open to anyone interested in getting involved, but seating is limited so please register.
