ARTS ADVOCACY 101
When elected officials don’t hear from their constituents about the arts and culture, they could easily assume that arts issues aren’t important to their voters. That is why it is imperative that arts advocates speak up regularly by letting key decision makers know their positions. To help you get ready, the Americans for the Arts’ Government Affairs team along with the Arts Action Fund will host this timely webinar entitled Advocacy 101 on March 29 at 12 p.m. PDT. Learn how you can advocate for the arts on the local, state, and federal levels both as an individual and organization. Hear from arts advocacy veterans on tips and tools to make your work as effective as possible.
- Learning how to be a grassroots arts advocate by being prepared with a specific ask, unified messaging, and connections to representatives.
- Understanding the top legislative issues for 2023 along with their talking points.
- How to connect with your state’s advocacy organizations to coordinate state and local advocacy work.
