It's critical that the arts and culture community turns out in force for this election, and that we make our voices heard as advocates for a healthier, more sustainable, more creative society. The first step is to be informed about your candidates and their positions, and to challenge them to make arts, culture and heritage a critical component of their strategies to serving our city. We hope to see you there!
