Arts Advocacy Day 3.jpg

On March 12-13, MATA was represented at the 2018 Annual Arts Advocacy Day in Washington, DC!

Arts advocates from around the country met on Capitol Hill to advocate and educate lawmakers about the importance of funding the arts. Along with AATA, local Art Therapists have joined this national conversation. Special thanks to MATA Secretary Roz Vanderpool for her participation in this event!
