Cultural Convergence 2020 – Arts-Heritage-Science Advocacy Day in Olympia
This is an annual event that brings together arts, humanities, heritage and cultural leaders from across Washington state. It’s a great opportunity for advocates to meet with their legislators to thank them for their support of the arts and heritage community, bring attention to statewide arts and heritage issues and local concerns, and share specific stories and highlights of real projects in our communities, schools, and venues statewide. Your presence along with many other advocates from across the state gives legislators a better understanding of the importance of arts and heritage issues in our communities.
With newly elected legislators and the reshuffling of legislative positions, this is a particularly important year to join your peers in Olympia. Learn more and register at https://www.inspirewashington.org/calendar/events/arts-heritage-science-day-2020
