GACAA’s Arts Advocacy Afternoon at the State Capitol Spotlights the $386 Million Arts Industry in Georgia

 

 Atlanta, GA – The Georgia Assembly of Community Arts Agencies (GACAA) will gather arts professionals and supporters from throughout the state for Arts Advocacy Afternoon at the Capitol on Tuesday, January 25, 2011. That day marks the formal launch of the new 2011 Arts Advocacy campaign for Georgia.

The arts and cultural industry of Georgia has a $386.9 Million economic impact annually, which generates over $18.6 Million in tax revenue.* Arts Advocacy Afternoon follows a morning of travel and tourism advocacy under the Gold Dome. This year’s arts advocacy message similarly builds on tourism as both are renewable and “green” resources, with the arts creating opportunities for travel, generating tax revenues for state and local governments; and celebrating the uniqueness and diversity of each region of the state.

Arts Advocacy Afternoon will begin with a training session at Noon to prepare supporters with the latest information and tools. The group will then separate into regional delegations to deliver the message to their elected officials. Those interested in participating in Arts Advocacy Afternoon should contact GACAA Advocacy Chair, J. Cindy Hill, at artsadvocacyga@gmail.com or at 478-731-5917.

Founded in 1979, the Georgia Assembly of Community Arts Agencies’ mission is to strengthen and foster community arts organizations in Georgia, to connect community arts organizations, provide professional development and technical assistance, and promote the arts. GACAA is a network of local arts councils and arts organizations across the state, comprised of professional and volunteer peers in the community arts field and providing a number of programs and services including an annual statewide conference each May.

GACAA leadership includes representatives from throughout the state who have begun to build a statewide network of arts and cultural partnerships with other groups including the Georgia Council for the Arts, Fox Theatre Institute, Georgia Association of Museums and Galleries, Georgia Communities for Growth, and others. At the annual 2010 GACAA Conference held last May in Augusta, Georgia’s arts and cultural leaders participated in a town hall-style forum to discuss Georgia’s arts advocacy needs and opportunities. The results of the discussion were the basis for the 2011 Arts Advocacy Plan for Georgia.
