ARTS AND THE 2004 ELECTION

July 1, 2004

Minnesota Citizens for the Arts invites you to a public meeting about the role of the arts community in the 2004 election.

Monday, July 26, 2004
6:00 pm
Jungle Theater, 2951 Lyndale Avenue South, Minneapolis

Learn how to get involved by registering voters, volunteering on campaigns, and talking about the arts in campaign forums.

The entire Minnesota House of Representatives is up for election this November. The makeup of the Legislature has the biggest impact on how arts funding will fare in the 2005 session. If we hope to restore any of the funding cut from the arts, our community has to be involved in this election. Incumbents and challengers need to know that the arts are important to the voters of Minnesota. You have a role to play. We will teach you how to use your influence as a citizen, voter and arts advocate to affect change at the voting booth and the Legislature.

This event is free but you must RSVP in advance by calling 651-251-0868 or e-mailing mca@mtn.org. Space is limited!

If there is a positive response to this event, we will schedule more meetings in Greater Minnesota.
