Eastern Michigan University has sent a 17-student contingent to Washington D.C. for National Arts Advocacy Day.  It's part education and part functional plea for continuing investment in the arts and arts education.  What are the hopes and expectations?  That's the focus this week on 89.1 WEMU's "creative:impact."
