DAA Institutional Supporters Roundtable: Sustainable Public Investment in the Arts
November 9, 2017
4 pm to 6 pm
Delaware Art Museum
DAA Institutional Supporters are invited to join DAA and Jay Dick, Americans for the Arts’ Senior Director of State and Local Government Affairs, for a statewide meeting focused on the topic of sustainable public investment in Delaware’s arts and culture sector.
During the intense debates and negotiations centered on balancing Delaware’s budget for FY2018, it became clear that Delaware’s state arts budget is and will likely remain a target for budget cuts. This program will yield a productive conversation with arts sector leaders that will generate ideas and strategies for moving forward and how to sustain the sector.
