Advocacy

WhyArts takes its role as an advocate for the arts seriously. We advocate in a number of ways:

  • By sharing best practices at local, regional and national trainings and conferences
  • By participating in the annual Arts Advocacy Day activities
  • By providing a public platform to showcase the artistic and creative talents of our partners

Is there an arts-related advocacy project or event we should be participating in? Email us at carolyn.o.anderson@gmail.com.
