From our friends at Georgia Arts Network…
Join the Georgia Arts Network on January 24th for Arts Day at the Capitol!
The arts community is partnering with our friends in Georgia’s tourism industry for Tourism Day at the Capitol on Monday and Tuesday, January 23rd & 24th. In these tough times, focusing on the positive economic impact of the arts as a vehicle which attracts tourism dollars to Georgia is a great way to convince skeptics of the need to invest in the arts now!
For the event, the Georgia Arts Network is partnering with: Georgia Association of Convention & Visitors Bureau, Georgia Chamber of Commerce, Georgia Restaurant Association, and the Georgia Hotel & Lodging Association.
You can find out more details about the event at the GACVB website, and you can register to attend HERE (it’s free to attend, other than the optional luncheon). Please plan to to attend the January 24th arts break-out session at 9:30am.
If you plan to attend, please register your attendance now with the GACVB and then inform the Georgia Arts Network by writing to us at firstname.lastname@example.org (please include the full names, email addresses, and organizations of all attendees).
You should also plan to schedule meetings that day with your local legislator; we would appreciate it if you would let us know when your meetings are, so we can facilitate coordination between arts groups in neighboring areas.
This year it is critical to speak with legislators about the need to increase funding for the Georgia Council for the Arts in order to secure that Georgia receives the full matching funds from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA).
Please help advocate for the arts in Georgia by attending this event and letting your voice be heard in support of the arts community! Register now!
