South Carolina’s arts need you!

It’s time to rally in support of the arts.

The budget process is getting underway, and advocates are invited to the Statehouse on Wednesday, Feb. 13 to join the SC Arts Alliance in encouraging increased support for the arts.

There are 17 new members of the legislature, and new members for almost every committee – and each of them need to hear from constituents about the impact the arts have on our state. Join the SCAA for their annual Arts Advocacy Day on Feb. 13, and come down the day before to help us celebrate our 40th Anniversary!

And join the SCAA throughout the week of February 11 for Arts Advocacy Week – with daily advocacy actions emailed directly to your inbox and toolkits to raise the profile of the arts in your community.

Details are below!

The S.C. Arts Alliances invites you to join them for their 40th anniversary and Arts Advocacy Day.

Registration for each of the featured Advocacy Week events is now open.

Changes for 2019: The first Advocacy Days started with breakfast followed by meetings with legislators and then a rally? The SCAA is going back to those roots in 2019.

Arrive in Columbia on Tuesday, Feb. 12 for an evening reception celebrating the 40th anniversary of the S.C. Arts Alliance, and join us Wednesday morning (February 13) for a Legislative Breakfast followed by scheduled meetings with your legislator in their office! End the day with our usual Rally at the Statehouse featuring student performances and lots of excitement!
