Arts Advocacy Day 2015

As artists, arts administrators, board members, and citizens interested in the arts, you are already advocating every day through your work.  Join us on Arts Advocacy Day to learn how to put your passion about the arts into constructive and informative advocacy.

Wyoming Arts Alliance's annual arts advocacy day is Friday, February 27th, 2015.  The one day arts and culture supporters gather to express the importance of the arts in Wyoming by speaking directly to legislators. 
There is a full itinerary of events scheduled at the Herschler Building and the State Capitol beginning at 9am and wrapping up at 2pm.   

Only you can make this day a success - if advocates like you join us to visit with legislators to discuss the impact of the arts in our communities. 

Registration for AAD  2015 includes:
- speaker sessions
- individual meetings with legislators, WyAA provided talking points for those meetings, and  visits to the Senate and House galleries
- Breakfast, Lunch, and coffee
- Performance by the University of Wyoming's Singing Statesmen

This is the one special day of the year when arts supporters come from around the state to be seen and heard by the legislature. Don't miss it!
