Democracy Creative is a nonprofit, nonpartisan design studio for democracy and community meeting hall based in Vermont.

We are reimagining government for the 21st century by catalyzing citizens’ assemblies and developing free and open tools for deliberative democracy.

We also produce (Re)founding, a conversation series on the future of democracy, publish articles on our Substack, and host Thought Club, a weekly discussion group.
