Tonight! Artists Plan to Pack the House for City Budget Hearing

Posted by Stephen Marc Beaudoin on Thu, May 21, 2009 at 8:06 AM

One part of the proposed city budget getting far less air play: funding for the arts.

The newly created Creative Advocacy Network (CAN) - itself jockeying for a $100,000 slice of the city budget - wants to change that, so Kathleen Cosgrove, CAN's interim executive director, blasted out this e-mail message just last night to the Portland arts community... I'll be there to hear it all go down - will you?

It's time to pack the house!

Show your support of RACC's budget request to Portland's Mayor and City Commissioners at the Community Budget Hearing scheduled for Thursday May 21st at Mt. Tabor Middle School (5800 SE Ash Street, Portland).

A Community Fair will run from 6:00-6:30 pm, followed by the Budget Hearing from 6:30-8:30 pm.

If you haven't already done so or can't attend the Hearing, please send an email to the Mayor and Commisioners showing your support - for a sample letter and email addresses visit www.theArtsCAN. org/blog.

We are taking RSVP's for the Hearing at info@theArtsCAN.org. Spread the word, bring a friend - support the ARTS!

Thank you. The Arts CAN and must live here.
