Pop up letter writing at Fidget Space in support of the Philadelphia Cultural Fund.
Sunday May 23, 11-1PM
Sunday May 30, 1-4PM
Philly artists are rallying to fully restore the PCF. There is a budget hearing on June 10th where this will be discussed. From PCF—
“Mayor Kenney has proposed $2 million in his FY22 budget for the Philadelphia Cultural Fund, an increase from the $1 million we received this year but still well below the pre-pandemic allocation of $3.14 million.”
Up until the budget hearing on June 10th we want to overwhelm our representatives with support of the PCF from community members!! FSP and Fidget will be holding space for you to do just that!
-We’ll have resources about who to contact, letter templates, and ideas for personalizing your letters of support. (And needless to say we’re just looking forward to hanging out with you!) We’ll also be happy to talk about more resources for this kind of arts advocacy in Philly and beyond.
-If you are able, bring a laptop or smart phone! If not, no worries.
-Please RSVP & let us know that you’ll be coming. This is necessary so we can give you info about getting into the building. To RSVP dm us on Instagram or email firstname.lastname@example.org
-Note about Fidget Space: Fidget Space is located at the top of four flights of stairs. There is no elevator available.
PS- Shout out to Terry Fox at PDP who let us at FSP know about this opportunity to advocate for the PCF!!
