Advocacy Resources

Greenbrier Valley Theatre is grateful for the state and federal funding that enables us to continue making the arts accessible to our community, supplementing arts education for local students, presenting professional productions year-round, and attracting performers and patrons alike from across the country. You can be a part of working to secure continued funding for our work and that of organizations all over the state and country. These resources are provided for your convenience. GVT's staff members are available to help direct you in your efforts to advocate for the arts with your local, state, and national lawmakers.

Throughout February 2017, our social media featured highlights of arts impact in education, culture, and economy. Download our advocacy resources and articles list to learn more about how the arts make for a richer world in so many ways!
