OMAHA, NE - Join Nebraskans in celebrating the nationwide day of activism during NFTA’s Arts Advocacy Day @ KANEKO on March 21, 2017 from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Arts Advocacy Day is an opportunity to have your voice heard. Join forces with arts organizations and fellow citizens to emphasize the value of arts in your community. By reaching out to elected representatives you can show them the importance of supporting arts funding and positive arts legislation.
What does Arts Advocacy Day @ KANEKO look like? Like a polling place, KANEKO will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on March 21 providing advocacy opportunities throughout the day. We will have stations set up for you to make a call, write a letter, or send an email to share your support. Stop in before work, meet a friend over your lunch break, or join us in the evening for a Community Celebration open house from 5 – 7 p.m.
The Community Celebration is an open house event highlighting Omaha’s nonprofit arts organizations with performances, presentations, and remarks from community leaders.
