The Relational Democracy Project begins with the understanding that relations are the basis of change in the universe, and our relations with one another — whether masked and in-person or virtual — are where power moves between us in practices.
Cultural change happens when the relations between us change, and we change those by changing our practices. We can orient our culture back toward democracy by embodying relationally democratic practices that balance the power between us.
This project provides research, creative projects, cultural work, and data-based practical recommendations and advice about everyday relationally democratic and non-democratic practices. The Relational Democracy Project organically grew from research sponsored by The Center for U.S. Rural Cultures Studies.
