We are proud to announce the release of the
2021 Arts & Culture Voters' Guide !!
ArtStock’s “Municipal & State Arts Advocacy” working group released the “Omaha Arts & Culture Voters’ Guide” today, March 29th, 2021. ArtStock - a cohort of 40+ Omaha Arts & Culture sector organizations and artists - is a coalition of diverse representatives of the arts community that are working to build a stronger sector from within.
The “Municipal & State Arts Advocacy” group sourced questions from Omaha residents, gathering input from all 7 districts. These
questions were then scaled down to a questionnaire that was then sent to all Omaha City Council and Mayoral candidates listed on the primary ticket.
As the Omaha Mayoral and City Council races are Non-Partisan, the goal of this guide is to create non-partisan awareness of the challenges and opportunities that the arts sector faces and create
accountability for future leaders.
