Support Florida's Arts Community in the Face of Funding Cuts

Governor Ron DeSantis vetoed $32M in grant support for 663 arts and culture organizations across the state.

The devastating decision to veto funding for Florida's arts organizations is flabbergasting. It reflects a shortsightedness towards the immense value the arts bring to our state. The arts play a vital role in enriching lives, fostering creativity, and driving economic growth. Lower audience numbers in recent years have already presented challenges to cultural organizations, and these cuts threaten to further strain an already stressed system.

CultureOwl stands with the arts community! Funding cuts can mean tough choices, but together we can ensure the vibrant tapestry of arts and culture keeps our lives meaningful. Imagine a world without music, museums, or the thrill of live theater. A world without color. We can't let that happen! Let's all do our part to support the arts – attend local events, donate if you can, and spread the word about the power of creativity in our lives.

Sunshine and palm trees make Florida paradise, and the vibrant arts community completes the package, making it the best state to visit and to live in - Don’t you agree? Florida has come a long way in the past two decades and become a world arts destination because of the growth of our vibrant arts community.
