 image About this Webinar

June 27, 2018 at 3:00PM (ET)

Ensuring elected officials are made aware of and are held accountable for the issues and needs of the arts sector is integral to ensuring communities have fertile ground with which they can grow and thrive. One way advocates can achieve this is by engaging in the political process—by educating and communicating the value of and holding their elected officials accountable on arts and culture issues. In this session, attendees will hear about organizations which have created arts-based mayoral forums in an effort to gauge the readiness and willingness of political leaders to foster a strong arts and culture sector

Learning Objectives:

  • Attendees will learn why it is important for political leaders to be engaged in needs of the arts sector. 
  • Attendees will hear from organizations which have hosted arts-based mayoral forums and learn the best practices and recommended resources for executing a successful mayoral forum which addresses arts and culture issues.
