The DC Collaborative's Membership Committee wants your input for arts and humanities education messaging this spring!

As the arts and humanities community gears up for the local, ArtsAction DC Advocacy Day on 3/22, the various budget hearings in April, and during Chancellor Wilson's Engagement Series (info in the article below). The DC Collaborative wants to make sure that the arts and humanities education community is well represented! We recently met with our membership committee to develop talking points specific to education so our community can have consistent, unified messaging at these awareness building opportunities throughout the spring.

Want to participate? Here's how!
  1. You're already part of the way there! Give feedback through this form!
  2. The DC Collaborative Membership Committee will develop an arts and humanities education advocacy guide as both a handout and electronically during the spring's advocacy opportunities, based on your suggestions.
  3. Include the message points in your own testimony, with personal stories that highlight your experiences through the lens of a DC cultural institution or a DC resident. If you would like a sample testimony please contact Be sure to include that your organization is a DC Collaborative Member!
  4. Attend! Come to ArtsAction DC Advocacy Day on 3/22, DC Council Committee on Education and Committee on Finance and Revenue Budget Hearings (schedule here) and the DCPS Engagement Series (schedule here).
The DC Collaborative's Membership Committee would like to see organizations, teaching artists and humanities educators from all 8 wards and all disciplines testify in the upcoming budget hearings and participate in ArtsActionDC Advocacy Day on 3/22.
