Call for Participatory Budgeting videos

Call for Participatory Budgeting videos

You have a chance to decide how to spend $1 million to improve your neighborhood. What do you want?

Tell us in a video.  The deadline is November 21.


Here's How

Participatory Budgeting is a new and different way to make decisions about publically funded infrastructure projects in your neighborhood.

Four city council districts are participating this year: Melissa Mark Viverito, District 8; Brad Lander, District 39; Jumaane Williams, District 45; Eric Ulrich, District 32. 

If you or someone you know has ideas about things to build or repair in these districts - make a

video and let us know!  All eligible ideas submitted by November 21 will be considered.   


Read and follow the rules

  • Create a 30 second to 3 minute video about how you would spend $1 million to improve infrastructure in one of the four districts
  • Upload your video to YouTube and tag it pbnyc (very important to tag it!)
  • Send an email to pb [at] artsanddemocracy [dot] org with your contact info, the name of the video that you uploaded and tagged, and a link to the video. Everyone who uploads a video will be entered into a raffle for a Flip video camera, so make sure to send us your info! 
  • Submit your video by November 21
