Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
How much does the National Arts Action Summit cost?
For 32 years prior to the pandemic, the National Arts Action Summit (also known as Arts Advocacy Day) took place in Washington, DC as a face-to-face convening that involved hotel meeting rooms, meals and events on Capitol Hill and at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. For those years, there was a registration fee ranging from $99-$150 for individuals and ~$300 for organizations seeking to join as an event partner.
However, having administered this event virtually, this year we are hosting the event without any costs to the individual or organizations interested in participating. We are doing this as we’ve seen substantial interest in engaging in arts advocacy when cost isn’t an issue and we want to encourage that.
