Have you ever participated in Arts Advocacy Day? It takes place in Washington DC. I would love to hear from you if you have been. It took place on April 16th and 17th this year. It is a way for art advocates to meet with elected officials and let them know how important the arts are in our communities and schools.
The schedule looks like an opportunity to gain a wealth of information and something I would enjoy learning. This year Alec Baldwin was the guest speaker and is an art advocate. His interview with NPR can be found here.
Our family will be in the DC area next year and I would like to participate in the activities. If you would like to make an online donation you can visit American for the Arts Action Fund.
Do you have any stories about your community and how to keep the arts funded? Do you think the arts are important?
