Annually, MCA undertakes a concerted effort to contact all elected officials during their legislative session. And while we encourage year round communications with senators and representatives, it is particularly important that all legislators hear from arts advocates living and working in their districts as the state’s budget is formulated.
Watch MCA’s 2023 Arts Advocacy Week workshop video (46 minutes), so you are ready to talk with legislators about the importance of state funding for the arts.
Be prepared for Arts Advocacy Week!
Go to our RESOURCES page to download the PowerPoint from our training, our Social Media tool kit and our Arts Advocacy took kit.
Thank you for partnering with Missouri Citizens for the Arts (MCA) to be an arts advocate. Please "adopt-a-legislator" by signing up to be in touch with a state representative or senator. We are so happy to have you as a partner in our work to secure public funding for the arts!
Regular communication with your legislators is essential for building the relationships needed for successful advocacy. We encourage you to correspond several times a year with your state representatives and the Governor, especially when a particular issue is being considered such as the budget for the MCA.
