The Arts Council sent an email asking supporters to lean on their congressional representatives to keep NEA funding.

BRONK: I'm all for that.

This year's event takes on added interest and import in light of President Trump's proposal to defund the National Endowment for the Arts and National Endowment for the Humanities, which are among several entities on the chopping block. The United States had declared its independence two years before, but it was still fighting a war to make it stand. In the midst of the American Revolution, with plenty on their minds, Sam Adams, William Duer and Richard Henry Lee - leading figures from both the North and the South in the Continental Congress - approved a US$1,000 grant to a man named Ebenezer Hazard to collect, edit, introduce and publish manuscripts, letters and state papers of American history. "The arts and the humanities belong to the people, for it is after all, the people who create them".

"'Journey to Oz' was one of four productions during Children's Theatre of Charlotte's 2015-2016 season to pilot the Theatre 360 program, which provides free theatre experiences for children and their families", said Linda Reynolds, CTC Director of Advancement and Interim Managing Director.

"We owe a lot of our success to the funding that's been provided by the NEH", Ellington said.

Through state agencies such as the Indiana Arts Council, the agency also provides competitive grants to expand access to the arts in urban centers such as Terre Haute and rural areas, such as surrounding Indiana and Illinois counties, Robeson said. That money helps to support the Kidznotes music education program, the American Dance Festival, the Hip-Hop Initiative at Duke University, and other organizations and programs.

Preston Whiteway, executive director of the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center in Waterford, pointed out superstars whose careers were boosted by NEA-funded projects at the O'Neill.

Regardless of what occurs at the federal level, state support for the arts remains strong, he said. According to a recent report by the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the art and cultural production contributed more than $704 billion to the US economy in 2013, accounting for 4.2 percent of the US GDP. Wilkins called the president's proposed budget "a shame but not a surprise". You're building something, yet you're not sure what - you're not subordinating it to pre-existing ideas, meanings or purposes.

"We're not talking about 5% of the federal budget", says Jon Robeson. The nation soon followed by founding the Library of Congress in 1800.

I encourage you to email or write to our elected officials and let them know the arts matter. This is federal money that actually makes more money.

Emmanuel Macron semble ainsi avoir voulu appliquer une stratégie visant à éviter la confrontation systématique. Aucune entreprise, aucun lobby ne donne. " Tous les noms ont été transmis à la commission nationale ".

"In cities, in wealthier communities, there will be individuals and foundations that can step in, and the brunt of it will be felt in places where these dollars are some of the only resources available for arts and culture", Nossel told TPM. Research on middle and high school students has found that students who engage in the arts generally attain high grades, do better on standardized tests and, most importantly, stay in school. "That the federal government has to subsidize people's exposure to art seems silly".

The final budget proposal is promised to be out within weeks, which leads us to ask, what would life be like without the NEA?

As in those past debates, Williams doesn't believe the current Congress will accept the cuts because there are too many members from rural states like Montana.

What are "humanities": As cited in the amended National Foundation on the Arts and the Humanities Act, humanities include (but are not limited to) the study and interpretation of language, linguistics, literature, history, jurisprudence, philosophy, archaeology, comparative religion, ethics, arts criticism and much more. This means including assignments in the core subjects that stimulate creative thinking and support students' artistic endeavors. He compared the budget to previous attempts to muzzle the NEA. Art can dismantle the overwhelming feeling of powerlessness with its originality and authenticity.

"I think the stereotype may be that these are elite institutions supporting other elite institutions", Nossel said, but she noted that they fund projects all over the country.
