Arts Equity Forum.png

From the Arts Equity Mayoral Candidate Forum: We recognize the arts built our reputation. We realize we must nourish our roots to keep harvesting fruits. We further note that development has unfairly affected some communities while favoring others. We call for equitable funding and restorative justice strategies to support small arts organizations and independent artists.

Local artists and organizations are hosting a forum to request that the mayoral candidates commit to reinvesting in Nashville’s creative roots. Learn more and RSVP below!

METRO ARTS IS FUNDED IN PART BY

The arts are getting cut from state budgets across America. In Tennessee, we are fortunate to have an additional source of funding. The extra revenue we receive from specialty and personalized license plate sales has been key to funding the arts in Tennessee. More than 70% of the money used to fund the 800+ grants from the Tennessee Arts Commission last year was from the sale of these specialty license plates.
