On behalf of the WyAA staff and board, we want to extend our sincere appreciation, to you our members, donors, and supporters. We are grateful for your partnership and support in bringing the arts to all of Wyoming.
You have enabled us to accomplish so much this year.
- WyAA has continued to advocate for funding for Wyoming’s cultural institutions with a $300,000 appropriation to the Wyoming Arts Council for the purpose of grants and $400,000 to the Wyoming Cultural Trust to build the corpus.
- WyAA surveyed candidates in election races to help educate candidates and voters on the importance of art and culture issues through our vote smART campaign.
- WyAA continues to pursue a passion for arts education. WyAA has partnered with the Wyoming Arts Council on a pilot program to advance arts in education over a three year period.
- Our block booking conference in Casper was one of our best. It was well attended by local presenters and artists alike. It was a delight to help connect art organizations from around the state.
We’re proud of what we’ve been able to do and we could not have done it without you! Your continued support will enable us to accomplish our plans thru 2015, including expanding member opportunities such as:
- Increased networking through our annual conference. This is your chance to get involved not just in the arts, but also to meet other professionals, while taking advantage of professional development workshops.
- Expanded membership benefits in three main categories: promoting local/state arts, representing the arts in state/national government, and creating a strong arts network. For a full list of membership benefits please visit our member page at wyomingarts.org.
- Annual Arts Advocacy Day a valuable opportunity to meet legislators and discuss how Wyoming citizens value the Arts; on a state and federal level.
Your membership and donor dollars makes these and other valuable services possible. We need you to accomplish even greater things in the coming year.
Together we are stronger,
