Fact of the Week #31
Fact of the Weeek #31: "When asked what makes the biggest impression on Legislators about the arts and especially arts organizations, policymakers at the state and national levels tell us the two following factors:
Successful programs in the arts and arts education that reflect service to a diverse, broad-based constituency within our classrooms and our communities.
The economic impact of the arts - how your community is able to leverage federal, state, local and private funds to serve constituents.
Therefore, we must tell our stories in rural and urban communities across our state and we must tell them over and over again. Advocacy should be part of your mission." www.scartsalliance.net
