You’ve arrived at Democrafest!
Here, we look at music festivals as places where open minds and community based experiences come together to cultivate a wholesome, positive, democratic environment.
Democrafest is a virtual representation of music festivals that show democratic culture. This project will show the examples of free expression, collective collaboration, diversity, and self-education that make up what we call “democratic culture” and flourish at music festivals. Particularly at campout music festivals, creativity and community is valued more than the social norms that inhibit us from unifying our own democratic culture. Musical performances, artistic installations, and social interaction helps to bring people together for a common good, modeling democracy at the ground level. On this website, I dive deeper into the qualities of music festivals that exemplify democratic characteristics.
