Arts Matter Advocacy Day: Showing our legislators that arts still matter
The governor will make his budget announcement in early March – but the public process doesn’t end there. Our next window for advocacy will open as the House and Senate announce their budgets in April and May, respectively, for fiscal year 2016.
In previous years, we have worked with local arts and cultural leaders to organize meetings with legislators out in their communities. This year, there’s a twist – instead of having our elected officials come to us, we’re coming to them.
