Local Arts Advocacy

Posted on: July 10, 2006

Just got back from my first commission meeting with a long list of things to research, prepare for, and jump right into. One of the items we put on our workplan (we spent all day Saturday planning our projects and goals for the year ahead) was to be active advocates for libraries, arts, and culture and particularly to particulate in Library Legislative Day (April 18, 2007), letter writing campaigns and other activities to be active on issues at the state level that affect MH. The California Library Association does a great job keeping people informed about library-related activities going on, but we wanted to pull together some arts advocacy sources as well.

Here are a few that I’ll have to check out

California Arts Council
California Arts Advocates
California Assembly of Local Arts Agencies
California Alliance for Arts Education Advocacy
Sacramento Arts Advocates
Arts on the Line
California Alliance of Nonprofits
National Assembly of State Arts Agencies

and of course nationally there is Americans for the Arts (with our family connection to that one…)

If you know of other good ones, please let me know!
