SF ARTS ADVOCACY 2017 MEDIA KIT
Join an all-day campaign to reach out to your local elected officials through social media to thank them for their continued public investment in arts and culture, to encourage them to increase resources to the arts across SF, and to remind them of the value of cultural and creative expression as core to San Francisco values and identity as a city.
The goal is to have every SF Supervisor hear from #ArtsDaySF advocates in all 11 Districts, from every corner of the city, representing a myriad of arts disciplines and project sizes!
- Include the #ArtsDaySF hashtag every time you post, so we can make our voices heard together!
- Personalize tweets to your elected officials - see list below. To add your elected official's name and Twitter handle to this list so that others may use it, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Personalize tweets to your district or neighborhood, by Twitter handle or #hashtag. Examples: @sfgov #SanFrancisco #MissionSF #SoMaSF #Tenderloin #ExcelsiorSF …
