MASSCreative’s Director Matt Wilson joined Massachusetts arts leaders and more than 550 grassroots advocates representing 48 states from across the country to underscore the importance of developing strong public policies and to increase public funding for the arts.

Americans for the Arts' annual D.C. lobby day provides the opportunity to meet with federal legislators to discuss important issues, including the Congress’ funding of the National Endowment of the Arts (NEA) and the National Endowment of the Humanities (NEH).
