/ #ArtsMatter Day 2019

Friday, October 25th is  Arts Matter Day, an annual celebration of arts & culture organized by MassCreative. This online day of action gives the creative community a chance to broadcast stories of impact and make the case that arts and creativity should be an expected, well-funded, and valued part of everyday life.  Join in the fun by sharing why the arts are important to you using the hashtag #ArtsMatter. Tag BYSO and we will repost, retweet and share your stories!
