What's At Stake In 2014? Between tax reform, budget battles, and education reauthorization, support for arts and arts education is facing many challenges on Capitol Hill this year. As Congress and the administration grapple with ever-changing policy proposals, it is imperative that arts advocates come to Washington, DC to make sure the arts to make their voices heard!

  • Strategize with experienced advocates during an interactive role play session on how to make the case for the arts and arts education to your members of Congress.
  • Network with your fellow arts advocates from across the country and go on congressional visits led by State Captains.

This year, we're excited to announce some program changes that will improve training opportunities to help advocates be more successful at Arts Advocacy Day. These skills will make you a more effective advocate for the arts on the local level:

  • Specialized policy briefings for beginner and advanced advocates
  • A new breakout session for student advocates to learn how to take action back on their campuses
  • Increased time for advocates to network and plan their visits to Capitol Hill
  • One-on-one professional development consultations with an advocacy expert to practice making the case for the arts
  • Hear Google staff present their latest nonprofit tools and learn about their Cultural Institute project
