We are thrilled to report that on Tuesday evening, the City Council approved the 2016 budget which includes $30,000 in support for the arts in Topeka!
This is a great victory for those of us who work to support the arts, those who enjoy the arts and those who understand that quality of life is a critical component of our community (so…that’s pretty much everyone).
ARTSConnect has made it a primary goal to secure municipal support for the arts and now the dream is a reality.
The final vote on the budget was 5-3-1. The arts funding was discussed at a previous meeting and the vote was 7-2 with Jeff Coen & Sylvia Ortiz opposing funding for the arts in Topeka.
We strongly encourage you to write to your city council member and the mayor. Please tell them how much you appreciate their understanding of the critical role that the arts play in our community and thank them for their service to Topeka.
