Arts Community Gears Up for Advocacy Season
An Arts and Culture Leadership Continuum on Advocacy was held this month at the Museum of Photographic Arts and the message to all was clear – “Everyone can be a advocate!” Hosted by the Commission for Arts and Culture, The San Diego Foundation and the San Diego Regional Arts & Culture Coalition, a panel of speakers included local, state and national experts on advocacy. In an effort to “Gear up for Advocacy Season,” 80 attendees received a roadmap to lobbying, as well as a snapshot of the upcoming races. The event was presented in partnership with California Arts Advocates and Americans for the Arts. A reception, hosted by Rising Arts Leaders of San Diego, followed at The History Center.
