Who We Are

Advocate4Culture was founded by a small group of evening and weekend volunteers including: Melissa Newbill, Anna Callahan, Heather Dwyer, Joel Lee, Jordan Howland and Sara Edwards.

Advocate4Culture is now a coalition of over 800 organizations and individuals who believe that arts and heritage is vital to our economy, quality-of-life, education and pride in our communities. We are dedicated to ensuring the survival of 4Culture, the single largest investor in culture in King County. It is urgent and essential that we secure a long-term funding source for 4Culture.
