Tuesday, April 5 was Arts Advocacy Day 2011, a national event dedicated to underscoring the importance of supporting and funding for the arts. In honor of this event, five members of Berkeley Rep’s Teen Council went to Senator Dianne Feinstein’s office in San Francisco to have their voices heard about the importance of arts education. They met with Director of Field Services Gina Banks and engaged in a conversation about the need to keep the arts in our schools.

As part of an arts advocacy social media initiative, members of the Berkeley Rep community and beyond posted on Twitter and Facebook about the value of the arts. Berkeley Rep teens presented these messages at the Senator’s office. Take a look below at some of the key words from their tweets and status updates, compiled into a word cloud on The larger the word, the more people included it in their posts.
