Sign up by Monday, March 29 so we can assign you a captain and facilitate meetings with your state elected officials.
During Arts Advocacy Week, hundreds of advocates meet (virtually) in Sacramento to illustrate the creative industries and artists impact on our economy and wellbeing and to meet directly with elected officials to encourage them to support increased public funding for the arts and legislation and policies that are pro-arts, arts education, culture and the creative sector.
Team captains from our distinguished Board lead groups of artists and arts administrators to meeting directly with elected officials in your areas. We will make it easy for you to engage in advocacy and for you to be inspired to participate, but you must sign up by Monday, March 29 so we can assign you a captain and facilitate meetings with your state elected officials. Depending upon the request of the elected official, registrants after Monday, March 29 may not be permitted to join the meetings. The registration form will remain open through Friday, April 23; we will do our best to accommodate requests, but can only guarantee you will be placed into a meeting with a designated captain and your elected officials if you complete the form by Monday, March 29. If you have any questions, please contact Matt Carney, Programs Manager, firstname.lastname@example.org
Every April, Arts, Culture and Creativity Month (ACCM) celebrates the significance of impact of the arts across communities in California. Especially relevant during challenging times, one thing remains the same: arts are essential and community is built around arts and culture. There has never been a more critical time to educate our elected representatives to the issues of importance to our sector.
Relevant general meeting information will be published soon. Detailed meeting agendas will be made available on the specific meeting page and sent directly to registered advocates.
