Show up for Culture: Arts, Heritage, and Science Week 2023
In Person & Virtual: February 6-10
This is an exciting week-long event that brings together arts, heritage, and science leaders, and cultural professionals from across Washington state. AHS Week is hosted by Inspire Washington, Washington Museum Association, Washington State Historical Society, ArtsWA, and ArtsEd Washington.
This is a great opportunity for advocates to talk with their legislators about statewide arts, heritage, and science issues and local concerns, thank them for their support, and share specific stories and highlights from our work in our communities, schools, and venues statewide. Your presence along with many other cultural advocates from across the state helps legislators know who we are when we talk about the importance of arts, heritage, and science in our communities. With newly elected legislators and the reshuffling of legislating positions, this is a particularly important year to join your peers in Olympia or virtually.
As we work to confirm appointments with legislators, we are seeking advocates to meet with legislators. (If you have never advocated in Olympia before don’t worry, we will pair newbies with seasoned advocates. It is a great way to learn).
