Citizenship Test

In collaboration with

2017 Installation

Based loosely on the 100 questions the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) uses to test aspiring citizens, we have created a set of flash cards that replaces the pressure and subjectiveness of a test with an opportunity for meaningful sharing with your communities. The 100 questions in Breaking ICE were culled from our Citizenship Fellows cohort and encourage participants to engage in critical dialogue around political, personal, fun, philosophical, and hypothetical questions. Our ultimate goal is to explore a brand of citizenship rooted less in documentation and fear and more in the cultivation of communities of belonging.
