Advocacy

Stating your case
Building relationships with local, state & national leaders

Whether arts advocates contact their representatives directly, or work with the media to present a continual positive image of the arts to the public, advocacy is essential to encouraging funding and support from government at all levels.

Advocacy event
Companies & Organizations

As a local arts group, your organization can make a difference in conveying the impact of the arts and arts education in your communities to local, state & national leaders in both the public and private sectors. Without your help, they may not realize the ability of the arts to support jobs, engage kids in school, and change lives in your area.

Individuals

As a constituent, you are the ideal grassroots advocate to convey to local, state & national leaders how essential the arts and arts education are to your community. You have the power to educate them about the importance of the arts in your community and to engage them on important arts issues at any number of levels.
