At a time when the Culture Wars have been revived in Washington, and there is talk of dismantling the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities, we need to look to our local leadership to show support for the arts in Massachusetts.
As we gear up for another budget and legislative season here in the Commonwealth, we’re reminded that democracy starts at home.
That’s why we’re thrilled to invite you to channel your arts advocacy energy into MASSCreative’s second Arts Matter Advocacy Day on March 28 to show our state political leaders that arts still matter in Massachusetts.
Join us for a morning at the Paramount Center in downtown Boston and an early afternoon at the State House. After a morning of mingling, celebrating arts & culture, and sharpening our advocacy skills at the Paramount, we will travel together in an “Arts Matter March” to the State House. When we arrive, we will meet with our legislators about arts and cultural issues, including the state budget. Together, let’s send the message: arts matter in Massachusetts.
