Arts advocacy day 2019

ARTS ADVOCACY DAY March 12th, 2019

REGISTER NOW FOR ARTS ADVOCACY DAY

THE NEXT TWO YEARS OF ARTS FUNDING IS ON THE LINE.

It’s the biggest arts networking day of the year! MCA invites you to join your fellow arts advocates at the Minnesota History Center and State Capitol to talk about the arts, make new friends, and educate our legislators. Together we will speak about the impact that the arts have had on our lives and our communities. Meet great arts people from all over the state, and make a difference with your friends and neighbors.

You and your team will be led by an experienced advocate who has participated in past Arts Advocacy Days and knows what to do. Following a brief rally, you and your team will visit a series of legislators over the morning, giving you plenty of time to get to know your teammates and the issues you are discussing.

By working together we show the strength of Minnesota’s arts community. Let your elected officials know what you think! 

Registration Deadline is March 8, 2019.

Join us on March 12 at the State Capitol and Minnesota History Center for a half day of arts advocacy, including a rally and meetings with legislators. We will be asking legislators to support funding to the State Arts Board and Regional Arts Councils which get grants out to every corner of the state. 

Our main message? When we support the arts, the ARTS GIVE BACK.
