Don't miss your opportunity to make your voice heard at the State Capitol during Arts Congress on Tuesday, February 3, 2015.

Join us for our annual advocacy day, Arts Congress, on Tuesday, February 3, 2015. The event will be held on the Senate Lawn of the Arizona State Capitol, 1700 W. Washington. Registration begins at 8:30 am and program activities will run until 2pm.

Arts Congress is the one day each year that arts and culture advocates, patrons, educators, business people and voters can speak directly to Arizona legislators about the importance of support for arts and culture in our state.

Why you should attend Arts Congress 2015:

  1. It's a great opportunity to get to know legislators, especially since 30 percent of them are newly elected.
  2. The 2015 legislative session will be challenging as senators and representatives decide how to deal with significant projected budget deficits.
  3. Your energetic support is critical to maintain funding for the Arizona Commission on the Arts.
  4. Take advantage of the Early Bird special for individual or organizational sponsorship opportunities.

Arizona Citizens for the Arts will provide you with training materials and talking points for your meetings with legislators. This is the one special day of the year when arts supporters come from around the state to be seen and heard by the Legislature. Do not miss it!

Register now to be a part of the individual meeting with state legislators, workshops on advocacy and the Arizona Commission on the Arts grant programs, lunch with the legislators in the big tent and visits to the House and Senate galleries.

From now until January 15, save on both your registration for Arts Congress 2015 and the 2015 Governor’s Arts Awards.
