National Arts Advocacy Day
Today, April 13, is National Arts Advocacy Day.
The 23rd annual Arts Advocacy Day is the only national event that brings together a broad cross-section of America’s cultural and civic organizations, along with hundreds of grassroots advocates from across the country, to underscore the importance of developing strong public policies and appropriating increased public funding for the arts.
It is a day when more than 500 arts advocates will take to Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. to talk to their government officials about the power the arts and the need for arts education and arts funding.
As Social Media is taking more notice from decision makers, it makes sense for us to put it to good use. Please take the time to create a tweet (or 20) featuring the hashtag #arts on your Twitter accounts and ask your friends to join in.
If we get enough tweets with #arts we’ll push “arts” into Twitter trending topics for the day.
