Contact your congressman about Arts Funding!

April 25, 2017: THE NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR THE ARTS funding is in jeopardy. The NEA impacts our local arts community and, as a member of AEA, you can participate in our efforts to save funding.

This week there were a couple of GREAT conversations about this issue. AEA hosted an event at Mixed Blood, and the Star Tribune hosted a discussion at Children's Theatre.

The #1 thing we all need to do? Contact your members Congress.
