We remind the people who hold positions in government agencies that the arts community creates our cultural identity and enriches our day to day lives. The priorities ACNV voices to these decision makers comes directly from our relationships with those in the arts community, which is why it is so important for us to be connected to our community members. 

We are also the main source for local businesses and non-arts organizations seeking guidance on conducting opportunities for and working with local creatives. 

With your help, we can expand our reach to further advocate for our local arts and cultural communities. This is why we need local advocates like you to keep us connected and involved with these communities we seek to support and make changes for.
