Use Your Voice

The COVID-19 crisis is rapidly changing the way we relate to one another but the arts sector has and will continue to be a connecting force and economic asset to our communities and the world at large.

As municipalities develop new forms of  economic response and assistance we urge you to advocate for our sector’s needs with your government officials.

Now is the time to contact government officials and let them know how to best serve arts organizations, artists, and community members in their constituencies.

Read below to get updates from our local and federal governments, as well as governments of cities and states around the world.
