Support the Arts
Missouri Citizens for the Arts is a non-partisan, state-wide, grass roots organization that advocates to secure stable financial support for the arts to benefit Missouri and its citizens.
We keep up with arts issues nationwide…
Consider joining Americans for the Arts as a way to bolster your efforts as an arts advocate in Missouri and nationwide. Americans for the Arts works on the federal level to secure funding for the National Endowment for the Arts, which directly benefits our state. And Americans for the Arts regularly undertakes important policy research that helps us make the case about the economic impact of the arts industry in Missouri and across the nation.

Save the Date: Missouri Arts Advocacy Week, February 1-5, 2021
What used to be called “Citizens Day for the Arts at the Legislature” will look different in 2021. But, hey, most things have changed in recent months. To keep arts advocates healthy and safe, we will not gather at the Capitol in February, as we have for more than 35 years. Instead, we will take our message directly to legislators via virtual meetings, coordinated conference calls, and organized print and social media campaigns. We’re getting creative and will use 2021 to establish and renew relationships with elected officials. And our message will be more urgent than ever before: Support the arts in Missouri! A vibrant creative economy is vital and benefits all Missourians – it is a key component to revitalizing the state’s economy. We need your help to amplify the collective voice of Missouri’s arts industry so that it is both loud and strong.
