Arts Action Alert

Wow, Look who is on the CAN Board. I signed up and have sent a few emails to help out and no wonder I have not heard back... These are the busiest and most involed Art Leaders in Portland. The Creative Advocacy Network, a new non-profit working towards a regional dedicated funding solution for the arts, is working hard to make sure that the Regional Arts and Culture Budget is preserved by Portland City Council. On March 12th at 2:00 RACC( 2008 annual report) will be giving their “State of the Arts” presentation to Portland City Council and describing how last year's investments in the arts benefitted the City. It is important that City Council see strong support and solidarity from the arts community.

The Arts CAN, and must live here. Please RSVP to if you think you can make it on March 12th. Tag, your it. BuzzByBrian
