Advocacy for the Arts

Texas Arts Advocacy Day is February 5, 2019!

As we all know, an important part of furthering the arts in the Fort Worth community is advocating for laws that support them.

Texans for the Arts is organizing an event at the capitol to demonstrate support for arts-centric policy in the 86th Texas Legislature. The 2019 legislative agenda includes several key items that would benefit the arts in Texas — including the Municipal Hotel Occupancy Tax, increased support for the Texas Commission on the Arts (TCA), and funding for programs providing arts therapy to veterans.

Arts Advocacy Day will include speakers, advocacy training sessions, performances in the Capitol Rotunda, and the opportunity to speak to representatives about why the arts matter to you. Register to attend the event at the capitol, hosted by Texans for the Arts, here.
