ADC at Arts Congress PHX
March 14, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm MST
The Arizona Dance Coalition is once again sponsoring the Arizona Arts Congress and we ask that you participate by sharing your dance arts contributions with us if you are not attending. We will prepare a handout with responses and share with all the district representatives in AZ. Also, we invite you to share with us your expectations from their leadership. You voted for them. This is your opportunity to express yourself. Send to: gro.noitilaoCecnaDzAnull@anytsyrK
Arts Congress will be held Tuesday, March 14, on the Senate Lawn of the Arizona State Capitol, 1700 W. Washington. While we were successful in ensuring the state budget include funding for the Arizona Commission on the Arts in the amount of $1.5 million, we intend to work to persuade state senators and representatives to vote for a $2 million allocation for the FY18 budget. Your voice is crucial to this effort. The day will only be a success if advocates like you join us, and visit with your state legislators to talk about the impact of arts and culture in your community and the importance of public support for the arts. Lunch with the legislators will be in the big tent and include visits to the House and Senate galleries.
We have made it a priority to engage youth (high school and college age) at Arts Congress this year and hope that all of our attending organizations will engage their student/youth leaders to attend along with them, so that they may begin learning and experiencing how to become change makers and arts advocates.
In order to set this initiative up for the most success, we are holding an interactive information session & advocacy activity workshop for youth at Arizona School for the Arts on February 11, 10-12 pm, 1410 N 3rd St, Phoenix.
