Although true, effective advocacy is an every day activity, we’re celebrating Thursday, April 16 as Creative Wisconsin Day (virtually!), part of Creative Wisconsin Month.
Here’s what you can do to celebrate:
- You can make a difference by making sure decision-makers know the importance of the arts and creativity to you, your community, and to the state. Send a message to Gov. Evers and to your State Senate and State Assemblyperson to tell them that a strong creative sector is key to Wisconsin’s re-emergence. Arts Wisconsin has made it easy for you to personalize and send your message. Click here for the details and to send your message.
