Washington State Arts Alliance

The arts create positive ripple effects throughout our communities. Our job is to help celebrate the intrinsic value of the arts and illuminate its instrumental effects on engagement, education, and the economy.

The arts strengthen our communities and increase individual, civic, and social engagement.
Arts education helps students develop essential 21st-century skills necessary to be innovators, problem-solvers, creative thinkers, and collaborators.
The arts are a cornerstone of a healthy economy and the key to tourism and economic development.
The Washington State Arts Alliance provides the tools, knowledge, and resources necessary to assist everyone in effectively advocating for the arts.

Participation by individual and organizational members makes it possible for the Arts Alliance to continue direct arts advocacy efforts; distribute action alerts and timely information; offer advocacy training; conduct candidate surveys; provide professional development opportunities; host regional and statewide convenings, and more.
