When the news about Trump being elected as a president of United States overwhelmed the democratic world, massive protests flashed in many Eastern states. Now the “100 Days Action” is a сommunity calendar of daily artistic events, suggested by actors, writers and other talented people. Performances, posters and other things will be made as an appeal to global attention.

Ingrid Rojas Contreras, the project manager, tells that the deal is to collaborate with galleries, museum and theaters for creating a coalition against Trump. Nothing can be changed now, when Trump has already came to power and sworn, but his future decisions are still quite uncertain in its consequences. People are scared, they need to be sure in tomorrow, but the president is not seeming to provide them stability and comfort. It is remarkable that the project’s name is related to the same list of “100 days of reforms”, a set of measures Trump is intended to implement: 6 steps against political corruption and 7 actions toward American worker’s protection. It is considered to be his first deals on the president post.
