MAAE is inviting arts educators and community arts program organizers to help us recruit enthusiastic arts students from each state legislative district to come to Advocacy Day 2017 at the Statehouse in Augusta on Wednesday, March 8th. The students (limit two per legislative district) will be matched with their state legislator, and will have an opportunity to talk with them one-on-one about why the arts mean so much to them. The students can be any age. Arts teachers, community arts program organizers and parents transporting the students are welcome as well. The program begins at 9:30 a.m. and will be over by 1 pm. Lunch will be provided.

To find out more, contact Susan Potters MAAE director at For a report and photos of this past year’s advocacy day, scroll down (past “BCTA Program Comes to Augusta”).
