Let Your Voice Be Heard

Use the tools above to advocate for the creative economy in Montgomery County Maryland and ensure the arts and humanities always have a seat at the table. As we discuss a strong economic rebound for Montgomery County through an equity lens, remember to include the creative sector whenever possible. When the devastation and slow recovery predictions of the hospitality, restaurant and hotel sectors are mentioned by elected officials, the arts and humanities must be included in that discussion for an equitable recovery.
