Advocacy Day 2016

Advocacy Day 2016: Dr. Cedric Adderly, President, SC Governor’s School for the Arts & Humanities; Carrie Power, Visual & Performing Arts Associate, SC Dept. Education; and Carol Baker, Chair of the SC Alliance for Arts Education.

Join fellow arts advocates from around South Carolina in Columbia February 7 during Arts Advocacy Day, sponsored by the South Carolina Arts Alliance.

The day begins at 11:30 a.m. in the State House lobby, with opportunities to thank legislators for their support of the arts. Arts advocates will be formally introduced as a group in both the House and Senate galleries.

The luncheon takes place at 1 p.m. at the Capital City Club (across Gervais St. from the State House). Have lunch with your fellow arts advocates and legislators to again say “thank you” to Arts Caucus members and encourage all lawmakers to support the arts. The luncheon’s guest speaker is Dr. Fred Carter, president of Francis Marion University and long-time supporter of the arts. South Carolina Arts Commission Executive Director Ken May will report on the current state and potential future of the arts.

Pre-registration is required for the luncheon; reserve your seat by February 1.
