Through art ResistFest seeks to engage people in political discussion, create art and community, resist the republican agenda, and empower people to represent themselves. 

ResistFest was inspired by PARK(ing) Day in San Francisco and other big cities. We were interested in exploring a creative space inspired by activists living rooms. Most of our member activists have been meeting in their homes to work together to take political action and we wanted to recreate that on a larger scale. Each 'parklet' is inspired by the issues each group is working on.  

Check back as we are still building our site and will be adding a How to Guide to help you make a ResistFest in your city!

Santa Cruz Indivisible's first ResistFest took place on September 23, 2017 and is a community event that uses art to facilitate political discussion and build community.
