State Matters seeks artists+makers across disciplines to join Creative Collective

State Matters is looking for filmmakers, animators, illustrators, designers, composers, musicians, writers, comedians, and visual artists. We are building a collective of passionate creators who can pick up contracted work on a regular or one-time basis; who will bring their own style and vision to the creation of this educational content; and who want to contribute to building a more civically engaged society in Illinois!

We're hosting a series of meet ups in Chicago to answer questions about the initiative and gain feedback and input from the artistic community about how we're structuring State Matters. If you'd like to connect via video to one of these events - please e-mail us at!

State Matters educates Illinois residents about their state and local government through engaging content that explains in simple terms how state government works and how to get involved. We create high-quality, attractive videos and graphics that (1) inform viewers on impactful bills currently advancing through Springfield, (2) decode how government operates, and (3) empower constituents to engage with their elected representatives.
