welcome, curious citizen.



Curious Citizens of Significant Developments is a participatory civic art work increasing citizen engagement in the process of government.

A history of intentional design to restrict citizen access to government has left gaps in our current system which makes it difficult for the citizen who is curious to become a citizen who is engaged

Through Curious Citizens we explore the possibilities which open up when citizens self-activate their relationship to government through simple curiosity. Our hope is that we can model new relationships with government to inform each other and our civic institutions.


Through Field Reports, “Curious Citizens” share their experiences and archive their discoveries to build an archive of citizen narratives.

Through our insignia, we build a unified identity as Curious Citizens by wearing the official Curious Citizen pin when we are exploring the world of government.
