Advocacy Training: Arts Advocacy Month at the Arts Council

Advocacy Training: Arts Advocacy Month at the Arts Council

February 22, 2018 5:00 PM

Throughout March, the Arts Council's advocacy agenda will include at least 30 scheduled visits to municipal and school board meetings around the Tri-Counties. 

We have created talking points showcasing the value and importance of arts and culture in our region and within our schools. We invite you to be our spokespeople and present these ideas to our municipal and school board leadership during the five-minute public comment portion of these meetings.

Join us for this early-evening training with libations and light appetizers at the Arts Council office. We will help you prepare and deliver the strongest message possible. If you would like to participate, please contact Aria Frawley today at and tell her of your interest. She'll get you signed up and answer any questions you have.
