Local Creatives Perform to Promote Census Completion

Magnificent creative voices are coming together to send a critical message: New Mexico needs you to help shape our future! The census determines a great deal of critical matters from how many seats our state is allocated in the house of representative to how our schools, healthcare facilities & fire departments are funded!

Every week, incredible local musicians and artists are coming to you (from their homes) to perform and share their thoughts on what the census means to them.

The Tiny Census Concert series is inspired by NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts and hosted by KNME’s Gene Grant. Each concert will feature performances by artists from a wide variety of disciplines, including musicians, dancers, spoken word artists, and visual artists.

The concerts will also feature special messages from Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller, county manager Julie Baca, state demographer Robert Rhatigan and other community leaders. The concerts will run every Wednesday at noon beginning April 8 through May 6 at Tiny Census Concerts. Each performance will stream live via Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.

New Mexico has so much riding on the 2020 census; we can’t afford to miss the count on a single household. If New Mexico were to undercount the number of residents by just 1%, the state would lose $780 million. The census has never been as quick & easy to complete. Find info on how to get counted here.

The Tiny Census Concert series is brought to you by the Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Complete Count Committee, which consists of 19 funded community based organizations including the New Mexico Black Leadership Council.
