Ask the Candidates

Here are a few sample questions to use when talking to candidates about arts and culture.
Raise your hand at events, ask them one-on-one, email them, and pose questions on their
social media pages about their positions on arts, culture, and creativity.

Sample questions:

The City of Dallas unanimously approved the new Cultural Plan for Dallas. What would you do to make sure it doesn’t sit on the shelf?

How does your support of the arts differ from your opponents’?

Do you believe the arts are an economic driver in a city? How and why?

How will you use your visible position to promote art and culture in Dallas?

Will you increase funding for the arts in Dallas if elected? How and when?
