Celebrate National Shop Local Artists Week!

Join us in celebrating National Shop Local Artists Week on December 2 - 8, 2018!

We invite you to send op-eds to your local media to promote the importance of supporting our communities' artists and creative economy, to invest in the work of local artists, and to promote to all consumers that art-including tickets to events and organization memberships-make great holiday gifts.

In the template op-ed provided, make sure to personalize it with your community's Creative Industries Report stats found here.

After hitting "send", here are a number of others ways you can participate, advocate, and promote National Shop Local Artists Week:

  • Visit www.ShopLocalArtistsWeek.org to learn how to partner and set up your own celebration,

  • Reach out to your local elected officials to share the economic impact of the arts in our communities and ask them to sponsor this customizable resolution,

  • Share the free, downloadable logo on social media with the hashtag, #ShopLocalArtistsWeek,

  • Post on your social media channels (with pictures!) of why you support local artists with the hashtag, #ShopLocalArtistsWeek,

  • For more ideas and inspiration, check out www.ShopLocalArtistsWeek.org.

Thank you for your support and be sure to do your part to advocate to our decision makers and bring attention to investing in our creative economy!
