Vermont Arts Council's New Video Explains Funding Needs, Artfully

Posted By on Wed, Apr 10, 2013 at 7:24 PM

The Vermont Arts Council has been getting about the same state appropriation for years. Twenty-three, to be exact. Twenty-three years without so much as a cost-of-running-a-state-arts-organization raise.

This year, the VAC is asking the Vermont Legislature to step up its game. 

What? When budget cuts are looming in every department? When the feds and all 50 state governments are chewing their collective fingernails over the sequester?!

Yup. And it's a fine time for the council to amp up its demands, IMHO. But this being a Vermont council, the request to double its funding — in order to match federal funding and not let Vermont's rightful money stay in Washington — is a polite one.

And highly creative. Just watch this three-minute video, courtesy of ORCA Media, and see if you aren't persuaded.


’nuf said, right? But if you want more info, the VAC will be happy to supply it here.
