Arts matter. Not just to the creative community, but to every community in the Commonwealth. MASSCreative wants to make sure that’s a message state political leaders hear – from a multitude of voices.
The organization is gearing up for Arts Matter Advocacy Day on March 25, 2015. From MASSCreative:
Join arts, cultural, and creative leaders and supporters for a morning at the Citi Wang Theatre in downtown Boston and an early afternoon at the State House. After a morning of mingling, celebrating arts & culture, and sharpening our advocacy skills at the Wang, we will travel together in an “Arts Matter March” to the State House. When we arrive, we will meet with our legislators about arts and cultural issues, including the state budget. Together, let’s send the message: arts matter in Massachusetts.
9:00-10:00: Registration and breakfast reception
10:30-11:30: Prep for legislative meetings
11:30-12:30: “Arts Matter March” from Citi Wang Theatre to State House
