Split This Rock urges DC City Council to Resist Arts Funding Cuts

I urge the Council to resist the cuts to the Commission’s budget proposed by the Mayor and to recognize the essential role that arts and culture play in the life of the District of Columbia and its residents, whose poetry explores the city’s past, negotiates its present, and imagines its future. Without poetry, we are a city without a story.

From Split This Rock Co-Director Sarah Browning's testimony in support of arts funding at the DC City Council hearings April 27, 2010. Read her full testimony on the web site of DC Advocates for the Arts here.
