Event Details

Join the Georgia Arts Network on January 29th

for Arts Day at the Capitol!

 

Online Registration is no longer available. You can register at the door. Just arrive at the South Rotunda at the State Capitol building between 8:30am-9am, and find the Georgia Arts Network Registration Table.


The arts community is partnering with our friends in Georgia's tourism industry for Tourism Day at the Capitol on Tuesday, January 29th. In these tough times, focusing on the positive economic impact of the arts as a vehicle which attracts tourism dollars to Georgia is a great way to convince skeptics of the need to invest in the arts now!  

 

For the event, the Georgia Arts Network is partnering with: Georgia Association of Convention & Visitors Bureau, Georgia Chamber of Commerce, Georgia Restaurant Association, and the Georgia Hotel & Lodging Association.

 

You should also plan to schedule meetings that day with your local legislator; we would appreciate it if you would let us know when your meetings are, so we can facilitate coordination between arts groups in neighboring areas.  


This year it is critical to speak with legislators about the need to increase funding for the Georgia Council for the Arts in order to secure that Georgia receives the full matching funds from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA).

 

Please help advocate for the arts in Georgia by attending this event and letting your voice be heard in support of the arts community!
