The arts matter; however, as the discussion about arts funding heats up nationally, ArtsWestchester aims to nurture a conversation among Westchester communities about why the arts matter. The organization encourages community members to join this conversation, and express how the arts have affected their lives, by participating in its #WhyTheArtsMatter social media hashtag campaign. Participants can post on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook by including @ArtsWestchester, the #WhyTheArtsMatter hashtag, and their response.
