|Texans for the Arts’ Texas Arts Advocacy Summit is approaching quickly! Register today to join your colleagues and citizen activists from across the state as they gather to learn, share, and participate in the democratic process on February 8.
There will be an unprecedented amount of state funding for the next biennium and this is our opportunity to let our elected officials know the positive impact that the arts, culture and creative industries have on each and every one of us!Whether we are talking about increases for the Texas Commission on the Arts’ budget – our state agency – or working to ensure the municipal Hotel Occupancy Tax’s “up to 15% for allowable uses for the arts” is protected, now is the time to speak up.As artists, arts administrators, board members, and citizens interested in the arts, you are already advocating every day through your work. Join us as we demystify arts advocacy and set attendees off on productive and rewarding visits with their legislators and their staff at the State Capitol.
