We promote civic participation and awareness in the state of Tennessee with the emphasis on the importance of voting in casual and intimate settings. We take the COMPLICATED out of civics and put the COMMUNITY back in.
1. We are all equal under the law.
2. Voting is vital to the preservation of democracy.
3. Every citizen shares the privilege
and responsibility to engage.
4. Freedom of speech, assembly,
and press are essential to free society.
5. Participation is critical to life, liberty,
and the pursuit of happiness.
BriteHeart strengthens communities and our democracy by encouraging citizen participation and civic pride through discussion and arts-centered events and initiatives.
Our democracy depends on citizens who are connected in community and empowered to make a difference.
By engaging in positive, respectful civic activity and conversations, we make the country stronger.
BriteHeart was founded in 2017 on this principle.
We use the arts to create opportunities for people to exercise their civic power in unique and creative ways.
By creating strong connections and meaningful engagement,
we empower citizens to build on the better angels of our national history and take the future in their hands.
With the lessons of our past as a catalyst, we hope to make the promise of a better America a reality, one community at a time.
Throughout 2017-2018, Briteheart created or collaborated on 30+ events in Nashville with more than 20K attendees and countless more reached
online and through media coverage in the Tennessean, Nashville, Vice News, and Rolling Stone.
In 2019-2020, the Company launched its signature programs, VotingIsVital, Fireside at the Fairlane and Harmony on the Horizon
conducting them all virtually. These core programs reflect our emphasis on civic participation, education and discussion
and the use of music and the arts to reach out to communities not as involved as they could be in our democracy.
Our ground-breaking Early Voting Concert Series set the standard for giving world-class musicians and songwriters
a unique platform to share their talent and the importance of voting and participating.
We were responsible for over 12,000 phone-banking calls during the fall election season to get folks out to vote
and we hosted guests such as David Plazas, Dr. Sekou Franklin and Shanna Hughey to discussions
with our members of the most pressing issues facing our democracy.
In 2020, BriteHeart connected with over 8,500 individuals through our virtual events,
social outreach, concerts, and civic engagment opportunities.
A festive music series featuring
songwriters and musical talent, with messages
of hope, progress and unity.
Series 2 is in pre-production.
