If the state of arts advocacy makes you tighten your jaw and clench your fists, relax — there’s something you can do about it. The New York City Arts Coalition is offering a free Arts Advocacy Workshop specifically designed
for those who have not taken part in advocacy or feel they need to improve or refresh their skills and information. It will focus on the City and State processes, and will also provide current information about both the City and State budgets and legislative issues impacting on the cultural sector.
Attendees will be given opportunities to ask questions, and explore their concerns.
If you, or your organization has not been actively involved in advocating for more public funding, or addressing legislative issues, in the past few years, this is an opportunity to quickly learn how to do so both effectively and credibly. Remember, you are your own best lobbyist when it comes to what you want legislators to hear. No one knows better than you what you do and its value.
Here are the details:
