Abstract: Cleveland’s recently formed Assembly for the Arts has hatched a postcard campaign to appeal to Cleveland city council to dedicate 2% of the city’s ARPA funding for arts and culture.

“We will creatively share with Cleveland’s 17 Councilmembers the power and the impact of the arts and culture in their respective districts,” said President and CEO of Assembly for the Arts, Jeremy A. Johnson. “Through art, we’ll represent the importance of investing in cultural workers and artists, nonprofit organizations, and cultural businesses. Collectively we are powerful tools to improve our city and to emerge from the COVID pandemic. We want to give creatives the opportunity to share with elected officials how putting the arts in ARPA is a priority for the city’s future.”
