An exercise in "performed participatory democracy," City Council Meeting is a national performance project by artist Aaron Landsman, modeled after the structure of local government meetings in which everyone "acts." Re-staged at various sites in each city where it is presented, City Council Meeting is enacted with local artists, activists, government officials and other citizens. Conceived after a particularly well-performed battle about zoning at the Portland, Oregon City Hall, this project takes the formal structures of local government as its departure point. 

City Council Meeting Houston is co-presented with DiverseWorks, and was developed during a spring 2012 research residency with the Mitchell Center. For more information on City Council Meeting, click here. For details and locations about the Houston performances, click here.
