JULY 31 - AUGUST 6
SHARING SPACE WITH 5.1 MILLION ARTISTS
Be an #ArtsHero is an intersectional grass roots campaign comprised of Arts & Culture workers, Unions, and institutions in the United States pushing the Senate to allocate proportionate relief to the Arts & Culture sector of the American economy.
#ArtsHero is 100% volunteer run.
The Arts make up 4.5% of total GDP and create over $877 Billion dollars annually in value-added to the United States economy and employ 5.1 million people. Simply put, there can be no full American economic recovery without an Arts & Culture Recovery. The Arts are big business and an enormous contributor to the overall health of the U.S. economy. To that end, The Senate must act immediately to draft and pass legislation to appropriate massive amounts of relief to the Arts & Culture sector. For perspective, the airline industry alone was appropriated $50 billion in the CARES Act and the Arts & Culture sector comparatively adds $265 billion more in value to the U.S. economy than the entire transportation sector combined.
Be An #ArtsHero is an INDUSTRY WIDE campaign that celebrates, amplifies, works with, and lifts up all other campaigns. We know that Unions, Symphonies, Ballets, Operas, Theatres, Museums, Libraries, Television Studios, Community Theatres, and others have their own campaigns. This is an effort to UNIFY and AMPLIFY to make them all visible to the United States Senate as fast as possible.
