2013 Georgia Arts Advocacy Day
Gathering of the Statewide Arts Community for a Day of Education and Advocacy
January 29th at the State Capitol in Atlanta, GA
Join the Arts Network and our partners in the arts and tourism industries for our annual day of advocacy. See the schedule for more detailed information on the day’s activities.
UPDATE: Representative Ron Stephens will speak at Arts Advocacy Day! More info.
At Advocacy Day:
- Hear from statewide experts on the state of arts funding and the arts community.
- Learn powerful facts about the impact of the arts on communities (positive impacts on children & families, economic development, quality of life, health, and more!)
- Meet with your state legislators and help us make the case for the arts in Georgia!
The arts community is partnering with our friends in Georgia’s tourism industry for Tourism Day at the Capitol on Tuesday, January 29th. In these tough times, focusing on the positive economic impact of the arts as a vehicle which attracts tourism dollars to Georgia is a great way to convince skeptics of the need to invest in the arts now!
For the event, the Georgia Arts Network is partnering with: Georgia Association of Convention & Visitors Bureau, Georgia Chamber of Commerce, Georgia Restaurant Association, and the Georgia Hotel & Lodging Association.
You should also plan to schedule meetings that day with your local legislator; we would appreciate it if you would let us know when your meetings are, so we can facilitate coordination between arts groups in neighboring areas.
This year it is critical to speak with legislators about the need to increase funding for the Georgia Council for the Arts in order to secure that Georgia receives the full matching funds from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA).
Please help advocate for the arts in Georgia by attending this event and letting your voice be heard in support of the arts community! Find out more details here and register today!
Thank you to our Advocacy Day Sponsors!
