Next week representatives of the Arts Council of Fairfax County will travel to Richmond, Virginia for the 2013 ArtWorks Conference on January 29 & 30, 2013 and State Arts Advocacy Day on January 31st, 2013.

The VCA provided $3,362,374 for arts grants in FY13. The state advocacy organization for the arts Virginians for the Arts short term goal for the VCA is to increase its grants funding budget by $350,000 in FY14 with a long-term goal of $1 per citizen.
