NH Creative Economy Leaders to Speak Out Against Devastating Cuts to NEA Budget that will impact the Granite State  

When:

 3:00 p.m. Wednesday, March 29th

 

Where: 

Legislative Office Building - Concord NH

 

Who:

NH arts and cultural business and non-profit leaders to announce their opposition to the proposed total elimination of the federal cultural agencies including the NEA, NEH, CPB, IMLS, and CNCS. This would devastate dozens of NH cultural agencies, institutions, arts groups, schools, after school programs – it would have a huge impact on the state’s economic and community vitality.

Why:

President Trump’s proposed budget cuts all arts funding in the coming federal budget.

The National Endowment for the Arts was created in 1965. It has an annual budget of $146.2 million to support "excellence in the arts" through arts education and efforts to bring the arts to everyone. The NEA has awarded more than 128,000 grants totaling more than $5 billion. The National Endowment for the Humanities supports research, education and public programs in the humanities at museums, libraries, colleges, public television, radio stations and other efforts. Operating under a $167.5 million annual budget, the NEH includes 65 humanities councils in the states – including New Hampshire.
