JACQUELINE VON EDELBERG
Vote Tree Founder + Ringmaster
Jacqueline is an artist, activist, social entrepreneur, and unapologetic ‘nasty woman.’ With two decades of applying creative thinking to seemingly intractable real-world challenges, she is globally recognized for her public art on progressive issues. She’s passionate about building coalitions, glittery movements, and digital platforms that drive civic engagement and create systemic change.
Jacqueline most recent effort was the Highland Park Art Memorial honoring the victims of the July 4th shooting.
The work recieved international praise, including features in USAToday and HyperAllergic, and is the subject of an upcoming documentary by Emmy award winning filmaker Jon Siskel. See HPpromise.org.
Jacqueline is perhaps best known as the driving force behind the revitalization of Nettelhorst Elementary, an underutilized and under-enrolled public school in Chicago. The effort is outlined in her book, How to Walk to School: Blueprint for a Neighborhood School Renaissance. Learn more: JVE Website.
Her latest side-hustle is Scratch Out Hate, cat scratchers for social impact.
