In January it was announced that the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) could loose all funding. The NEA has been the life-blood and foundation of the arts community across our nation since 1965. They provide grants for dance, music, drama, literature, outreach education, and so much more.
With the petition surpassing 35,000 signatures, it became clear that more could be done to spread the message. So began our project of one ANTHEM to support arts in America and #SavetheNEA and an invitation to the US Senate!
Watch the video below to learn more and HOW YOU CAN HELP us reach our FUNDING goal! It will involve artist from all artistic disciplines and YOUR video submissions from across the country.
