The Future of Arts Funding

posted by admin — Sep 16, 2002

In the coming year, it will be more important than ever for people working in the arts and humanities to advocate for increased federal funding for arts and cultural programs, since they are often the first programs to be cut in an economic recession. The federal budget process begins in February 2002, we urge you to participate in the following arts and humanities advocacy events in Washington, DC, co-sponsored by CAA : Arts Advocacy Day, March 11-12, 2002, and Jefferson Day, March 21-22, 2002. Both events will bring together artists, scholars, and others to express the importance of federal support for the arts and humanities to Congressional leaders.
