Calling on all arts advocates to join in the #BeTheARTbeat crowd-sourced video!

Beginning July 12, 2013, the Arts Action Fund is launching a crowd-sourced video and we need your help! We are calling upon all artists, arts administrators, arts organizations, and arts advocates to share their love for the arts. Each one of you has a unique story to tell and we want to hear your answer to one simple question:

How do the arts inspire you?

Now here’s your challenge. You have two options:

  1. Submit a video! Recite “The arts inspire me to___  ___  ___." Fill in the blank with 3 words that complete the statement.
  2. Submit an image or photo that represents how the arts inspire you. In the comment box write “The arts inspire me to___  ___  ___.” Fill in the blank with 3 words that complete the statement.

Example: “The arts inspire me to make a difference!”

Example: “The arts inspire me to create and collaborate!”

Are you up for the challenge? Together we can create a unified voice in support of the arts.
