AC Character Intro

I know.  You and I are so busy with work and trying to
juggle all that we have to do every day; 


we all want our policymakers to RESTORE appropriation and policy INVESTMENTS for Florida's arts, arts education, and culture industry.

Our goal starts with AWARENESS.   Together and right NOW during the 2018 Elections, let's create greater  AWARENESS with current and future policymakers about Florida's arts & culture industry.

Where do you and other arts & culture advocates start? 

Do you have to do all this research about your candidates and how and where to easily connect with them?

Are there simple, one-page Arts & Culture Platforms that you can easily share with your candidates?

Is there a one-page simple list of action steps you can take NOW to engage and be effective during the 2018 elections?

Are there materials specific to your county and region of the state?


YAY!  All you and other advocates have to do NOW is invest
some time to CONNECT and create  AWARENESS
