Heritage advocates – kick off the month right by participating in Arts & Heritage Day on February 1.
Following an evening reception on January 31 at the Capital Heritage Museum, the work of advocating for cultural causes begins in earnest at 7 AM on Wednesday, February 1. The Washington Museum Association and the Washington State Arts Alliance have joined forces to make a joint presentation at the weekly Heritage Caucus in Rooms ABC of the Cherberg Building.
Following that meeting, registration and orientation take place in the Columbia Room on the ground floor of the Legislative Building, and then arts and heritage advocates will break into small groups to meet with their state representatives and senators. Lunch and presentations occur midday, with more scheduled one-on-one meetings in the afternoon.
If you would like to be among those paying calls to your legislators on behalf of heritage issues, click here for the appointments that have already been scheduled with legislators.
If you cannot get down to Olympia on February 1, please take time on this day to send an e-mail to your legislators, telling them about your association with historical or heritage causes and explaining the important economic, educational, and social impacts your local heritage organizations have on your community.
