Citywide Participatory Budgeting Idea Generation Session
Theatre of the Oppressed NYC is partnering with the NYC Civic Engagement Commission (CEC) for “The People’s Money” — NYC’s first-ever citywide participatory budgeting process. All New Yorkers age 11 and up will be able to decide how to spend $5 million of mayoral expense funding in their borough.
Join TONYC for a virtual idea generation session, where you are invited to brainstorm ideas for creative projects that address your community's needs. Projects will then be developed into ballot proposals, which will be voted on by residents in each borough. Winning projects will then be implemented starting in July of 2023.
TONYC Actors will receive a $40 stipend for attending one session. Snacks will also be provided at the end of the session.
