Updated: Jan 19, 2022

We are bringing Arts Advocacy Day 2022 to YOU! Opening up attendance to Tn4Arts members across the state for our first ever Virtual AAD in 2021 gave us our best attendance yet. This year will be no different because we know... the greater the numbers, the stronger the voice.

We are inviting all Tn4Arts Members to join us, Virtually, on March 9th, 2022. We need your help telling Legislators about the value of the arts in your community. We want to provide you with talking points to help you focus your communication and help you fold your story into Tn4Arts’s “one voice one message” strategy. We are asking you to join with fellow Arts Advocates to amplify our voice for and commitment to the arts in Tennessee, our support of the Specialty License Plate program, and grants provided by the Tennessee Arts Commission.
