PAA is hitting the road in 2015!

In conjunction with its spring board of directors meeting, The Performing Arts Alliance is coming to Austin, TX and invites you to join us for an evening of sharing and listening. PAA will share information about federal policies and activities impacting the arts and listen and learn from artists and arts organizations in the Austin and San Antonio regions about the matters—social, economic, political, etc.—affecting their careers and work.

Date: Thursday, April 16
Time: 5:00-7:00pm
Location: Long Center for the Performing Arts, Kodosky Lounge; 701 W. Riverside Drive, Austin, TX 78704
Cost: Free

We hope this gathering can help connect local and federal policies, artists and organizations across disciplines and perspectives, and encourage relationship and network-building to support our common goals in arts and advocacy.

The event is co-hosted by Ballet Austin and NALAC and co-sponsored by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin.

The 114th Congress: A New Capitol Hill for the Arts

The results of the 2014 mid-term elections—Republican control of the Senate, fewer Democratic seats the House—will bring new faces to Capitol Hill and to some of your districts and states.

With new policymakers headed into office, this is an opportune moment to educate them about the role and value of the arts in America. As soon as possible, make your voice heard and tell your lawmakers how your arts organization is making an impact where you live.

PAA looks forward to building relationships on Capitol Hill with new members of the 114th Congress, and we have tools and information to help arts advocates and organizations do the same with their new leaders.
