Do you love Janis Joplin? Lizzo? Nirvana? Chance the Rapper? Lady Gaga? The independent venues that helped launch these superstars need your help. Contact your Senators and Representatives and let them know you support your mom and pop venues who need financial support from the federal government.

It will only take 60 seconds to make your voice heard.

We Need Your Help To Save Art Sanctuary!
Thank you for your ongoing support of Art Sanctuary.
Together with you, we have played a role in bringing Louisville to life and furthering careers of countless artists. Now, independent venues like ours are at risk, and we need to tell our Senators and Representatives how important Art Sanctuary is to your and Louisville, KY.

When this crisis began, independent music venues were the first to close, and will be the last to open. While completely shuttered we have no revenue, our employees and artists are without jobs, and normal bills keep coming, regardless. 

We have joined the National Independent Venue Association (NIVA), a group of more than 1,200 independent music venues and promoters in all 50 states, to collectively urge Congress to help protect our industry by providing the financial support that is necessary for us to survive the shutdown and reopen once again.

Please, join us and support our cause by calling and writing our Senators and Representatives today.

Yell it. Scream it. Clap your hands and pound your feet like you’re calling the band back for an encore! Please help us ensure we survive by using your voice now (and tell a friend or 100!) #SaveOurStages
