Please spend a few moments today contacting your mayor and city council members. It is important to Tulsa. On Thursday, Tulsa’s mayor and city council will finalize the proposed items for the next Vision funding package to be voted on by taxpayers in March.
Currently, Arts Alliance Tulsa has a proposal being considered that would provide annual funds to member organizations. This is an historic moment because, as of today, our city does not provide funds to non-profit arts organizations. Nationally, more than 63% of government funding to arts groups comes from local municipalities. It is time for Tulsa to join the other progressive cities in the nation that help fund their local arts groups.
Not only will this money come to local arts organizations through AAT, it will send a message that Tulsa is a forward-thinking city and help us attract the best and brightest to our community.
Please contact Mayor Dewey Bartlett and city council representatives before Thursday and tell them you support the arts being included in the new Vision package. And, please do the same by forwarding this email to as many as possible. Together, the AAT member organizations serve more than 1 million people per year. By mobilizing our audiences, the arts in Tulsa will finally have a unified voice and a place at the table.
