Arts Advocacy

It's more important than ever to contact our legislators and ask them to #SavetheNEA. ArtsMemphis is setting up postcard writing stations at several arts events around town. We ask you to take a moment to tell our elected officals write why the arts matter to you. #artsmatters  Each postcard is addressed and we will add the stamp plus mail it for you.

We recently heard from one Representative who said he received 65 postcards in one day. It makes a difference!

Where to Find Postcard Stations This Weekend

Look for our stations at Playhouse on the Square for the Midtown Opera Festival, Hattiloo Theatre and Brooks Museum of Art at the National Black Box Performing Arts Festival, T Clifton Art for the Broad Avenue Spring Art Walk, and at GPAC for the New Ballet Ensemble Springloaded: Coppélia Remix.

All of these stations are free and open to the public. Please stop by to fill out a postcard and let us mail it for you. 

Spotlight on National Civil Rights Museum

The National Civil Rights Museum is a 2016 Arts Builds Communities (ABC) grant winner for their funded activity, King Day. King Day is an annual event that has been a centerpiece of the Museum's programming since its opening in 1991. Activities include family arts and cultural programming, youth-centered learning, food vendors and the National Civil Rights Museum experience.

This year King Day was held on the national holiday Monday, January 16, and honored the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., one of the most prolific humanitarians and leaders of the Civil Rights Movement. The focus of the celebration was community service and social justice in honor of Dr. King’s impact on the global society. 

Thanks to their ABC grant they were able to present 7 artists and arts groups to a diverse crowd of over 6,000 people.
