2016 SHINE Mural Festival - Artist: Arlin Graff

On the local, state and national levels – now more than ever – the ARTS need strong advocates.

You can speak up to influence public policy, laws and budgets by educating government officials and the public on positive changes for the arts community. 

Advocacy is about building a relationship with your elected official. By sharing information on the issues that matter most to you, you let them know about the good work arts and culture is creating in their district.
