Cultural Futures is IW's annual share and listening tour following the Legislative session. The purpose is to connect with the cultural sector across the state by sharing what happened during the session and listen to their challenges and needs in preparation of creating the next year's legislative agenda. This year's events summarized: the importance of advocacy, cultural wins from the session including Working Washington 5 grant program, Building for the Arts, Arts Education Bill, Film Incentive Bill, and much more.

This report details IW's work during the first 6 months of 2022 from the Legislative Session, advocacy and outreach, and the grassroots tour that brought us in-person to 16 regions across the state.
