Advocacy for the Arts

Texans for the Arts

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 tracks the Texas Legislature’s priorities that relate to supporting the arts and provides resources for interested community members to be involved in advocacy. Its website states:

“Texans for the Arts (TFA) is a highly effective, non-partisan statewide arts advocacy organization that provides coordinated information about legislative activity related to arts issues and organizes advocacy efforts in order to protect and increase public funding for the arts at the state, national and local levels.”

If you’re interested in expanding your love for the arts to involvement in policy, the Texans for the Arts website provides several easy methods for participation in advocacy.

The TFA Action Finder highlights timely issues that require action. You can access that HERE.
TFA also tracks relevant items on the legislative agenda. You can read about those for the 86th Texas Legislative Session HERE.
