Legislative Arts Caucus

What is the Legislative Arts Caucus?

The Legislative Art Caucus was formed to:

  • advise the Arts Council and its constituents about legislative issues affecting arts policy and budgets
  • inform legislative colleagues about the benefits of the arts in Vermont and provide leadership on arts policy
  • promote a legislative agenda for the arts and build consensus around arts budget and policy issues

The Arts Council will:

  • advise the Legislative Caucus about issues important to Vermont’s arts community so that members are well prepared to report to the legislature about the arts
  • provide data that substantiates the role of the arts in economic productivity, educational success and community well-being
  • inform constituents about efforts being pursued by legislators to put art and culture at the center of Vermont community life
  • provide an in-house forum through which issues and concerns about Vermont’s culture and heritage may be discussed and policies formulated
