Arts, science and heritage organizations help make Washington a great place to live, work and play. Whether you are visiting an aquarium, attending a play, or learning about your community at a museum, you are benefiting from access to cultural experiences.

Access to arts, heritage and science experiences advances education, enhances the economy, enriches our quality of life and strengthens our communities. Cultural experiences have the power to transform lives.

A coalition of business, non-profit, educational, labor and government leaders across the state worked together to pass legislation authorizing any county in Washington state to put before the voters 0.1% of sales tax (or equivalent property tax) to support access to Arts, Science, and Heritage organizations in that county. Passage of a ballot measure would increase access to cultural experiences for children and adults across Washington. Funds would be used to provide cultural education programs for students and residents, and to pay for school transportation to these venues.
