How important is Arts Education to our community?

“As an Artist & Art Educator, I know and understand the essential value that Art Education holds for learners but do others know and understand? Your school leaders? Parents? Your Elected Representatives? Your School Board Members? Your Local Media? Join me in advocating for Arts Education. Your support is highly valued and your concerns will be heard!” - Dany Pen

The National Art Advocacy March was held for the first time in Bermuda led by Artist Dany Pen on February 27, 2015. The march itself was to bring awareness to Arts Education and to enforce the value and appreciation of the Arts. When the Arts is appreciated by the larger community, the Arts won't become a direct target for budget cuts. Scholarships, bursaries and grants should be highly funded and made available for students, practicing artists and art charities.

By signing this petition, you are helping the Art Advocacy in campaigning for more funds to be allotted towards the arts. This petition will be used to show community sponsors how their $Dollar can contribute to the current community needs for the Arts.

This petition will advocate for funding to go towards:

- Art supplies for art educators and students

- Scholarships, grants and bursaries for students, art educators and practicing artists

- Funds for art programmes and art charities

Thank you for the massive support from the many artists, community members and art organizations. This advocacy for Arts Education will be an ongoing campaign - so please join me in advocating by signing this online petition! - Dany Pen
