Let's Rock Arts & Heritage Day 2014!

Advocate4Culture encourages all advocates to attend Arts & Heritage Day on February 5, 2014 in Olympia. Washington State Arts Alliance and the Washington Museum Association have organized this day for artists, heritage specialists, cultural workers and advocates to visit with legislators and learn more about legislation that impacts the cultural community in Washington State.

How to Prepare for Arts & Heritage Day?

Find and contact your Team Captain and let him/her know you will attend Arts & Heritage Day. They can help you identify which legislators are yours if you don't already know, and they can help you meet others who may interest you.

When you arrive in Olympia (directions, parking, campus map), check in at the registration table in the Cherberg Building on the Capitol Campus. Here you will to receive your attendee packet and name badge. You are welcome to attend one of two orientations offered at 8:30 am and 9:30 am. Meet colleagues from across the state, discuss arts and heritage issues with legislators.
