Americans for the Arts is holding an “Arts Advocacy Day” this April 4 and 5, and to help you in your advocacy they’ve compiled briefs on many of the issues that arts and arts education will be facing this year in the USA.
Arts Advocacy Day is the only national event in the US that brings together America’s cultural and civic organizations along with grassroots advocates, and they’re working to underscore the importance of developing strong public policies and appropriating increased public funding for the arts.
Their message is threefold:
LEARN new ways to make the best case for the arts to decision-makers.
NETWORK with other attendees form your state and across the country
BE HEARD by your members of Congress when you visit htem to make the case for the arts and arts education.
