July 11, 2018 at 3:00PM (ET)
Arts-based community development drives meaningful and equitable change within communities. It is the duty of local arts agencies to ensure that fertile ground exists, to allow for growth and vibrancy of the arts and culture sector. The Arts Engage Candidates series will demonstrate to attendees the importance of proactively articulating arts issues to candidates running for office; cultivating relationships and buy-in from candidates running for office; and realizing their own leadership potential in running for office.
Support for the arts must come from every level within a community. Some of the most important allies the arts can have are elected officials and candidates. As such, arts advocates need to cultivate relationships with elected official and candidates and recruit them as arts champions. These relationships can be built through both traditional and non-traditional means. This webinar will look at organizations and individuals engaging political officials and candidates on arts issues in less traditional methods.
- Attendees will hear less traditional approaches to engaging elected officials and candidates on arts and culture issues.
- Attendees will learn new strategies in building relationships with elected official candidates.
