is Well Represented!

 ArtsActionDC Advocacy Day on 3/22

#BeTheVoice -  Action DC fights for legislative and regulatory policies that support Arts, Culture, Humanities, and the Creative Economy. Their ultimate goal is to ensure that Washington, DC is an arts-invested city that's inclusive and supports all sectors of the Creative Economy. Over the summer the Arts Action DC steering committee came up with two key legislative priorities to focus on during the 2017 ArtsAction DC Advocacy Day:
  1. Arts & Humanities- Increased Funding of DCCAH to $25+ Million
  2. Creative Economy- Develop new funding cohort for the Commercial Arts/Professional Services sectors of the creative economy that will stimulate/support workforce development, infrastructure, and entrepreneurship 
On March 22nd, the Arts, Humanities and Creative Economy sectors will be taking over the Wilson building as part of the 2017 Advocacy Day. Their goal is to have a delegation representing Arts, Humanities and the Creative Economy meetings with each Council member/staff to discuss our priorities. Additionally, they are planning to provide programming to showcase Arts, Humanities and the Creative Economy cultural activities.
  • Youth art presentations
  • Oral history presentations 
  • Pop-up retail, culinary, fashion and "Made in DC" presentations
  • Theater performers in costume
  • Cyphers, spoken word and poetry reading
  • Podcasting, digital media presentations and more
Immediately following the Advocacy Day the 3rd Politics & Art: A Jam Session at the Wilson Building hosted by Council member David Grosso and the Washington Performing Arts will take place starting @ 5:30pm.

In order for their advocacy efforts to be successful, they need active participation from leaders in the Arts, Humanities and the Creative Economy community. They need all hands on deck to turn out hundreds of leaders for the March 22nd events!!!
