WE ARE ALL ARTS ADVOCATES
It is part of our role as a community member. So what does that mean to you?
- Own the impact that the arts and culture have on our economy, and be proud of that. The Arts Factor (from ArtsBoston) can give you some statistics--we will get you others.
- Tell your own story.
- Out yourself as an artist (or theater lover).
- Pay attention to alerts, and act on them.
- If your senator, rep, governor, mayor, selectman, town manager, or any other elected official votes or acts in support of the arts, write or call with a thank you.
The arts aren't just nice, they're necessary.
