Local artist Benjamin Dunstan is painting his next canvas at the Courtenay Library.

It’s in conjunction with an open invitation to explore the possibilities of a burgeoning model of democracy, which supports greater community involvement under the What If…? logo. The What If… branding did not cost $180,000 as did our airport branding

logo. Yet, it could have greater importance to our future directions.

This What If… starts with recognizing that the way we “vote” is old century. Voting is the easiest of methods to manipulate, since people are typically kept misinformed and misdirected away from core issues by the prolific use of propaganda and media sound bytes.

What If… you would like to know more, or if you would like to become a trained facilitator within an Intentional

People’s Congress (IPC)?

Dunstan, an internationally noted artist will paint his intricate vision of an IPC at the Courtenay Library this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., where informal discussions on the deliberative model will take place.

We are not trying to usurp our current political system, as much as make it more functional. If you agree or disagree, take a moment to speak with us, and enjoy visual art live —”We need your

mind!”
