MARK YOUR CALENDARS! February 10, 2015 is MD Arts Advocacy Day at the Capital. This important and productive day at Annapolis needs your leadership voice and action.

HOW ARE WE SUCCESSFUL? The large number of attendees with their passionate plea! Every year SWAC arranges a carpool to take as many of us there as possible. It's more important THAN EVER for a large attendance as we have a brand new Governor and Wicomico County Delegate to influence. Speakers presentation & individual sessions with delegates from our area are on the agenda and SWAC is urgently asking for your participation as a strong showing support from Wicomico County.

WHAT? This is where arts advocates from all over the state gather to speak directly to our Senators, Delegates, and Governor about the importance of the arts. We must reach our elected officials from the entire state with the important mission of funding for the art.

WHY? Exactly because of the number of attendees & their strong voice, great achievement has been made in the past resulting with MD being one of the top three states in the nation for the highest arts funding in the Governors budget of 16 million dollars earmarked for the arts!

"The Arts are an economic and an academic engine, creating tomorrow's leaders and today's prosperity. When you support the Arts, you support yourselves." ~ Therese Hamilton, Executive Director, SWAC

The main purpose of the day will be to discuss with lawmakers the importance of a strong arts community to the economic & cultural vitality of Maryland. Maryland Arts Day & SWAC needs your participation!
