Developing strong public policies. Appropriating increased public funds for the arts. ADVOCACY MATTERS. The Metropolitan Atlanta Arts Fund proudly supported travel expenses for three DeKalb School of the Arts students – Sarah Napier, DeBorah Ault and Mackenzie White – to attend Arts Advocacy at the United States Capital in March. These students used their knowledge and personal stories to advocate for why the arts matter to Georgia Representatives. The importance of the National Endowment for the Arts especially came alive for them.

Of the experience, the students said:

“This trip was very impactful for all of us and sparked our passion to continue to advocate for the arts.”

“Going to advocate on capitol hill for a cause that I am extremely passionate about was an experience that I would trade for nothing.”
