Details

Music and the arts articulate our beliefs, politics, familial and communal ties and past and present reality. 

Music, dance, poetry, paintings and theatre shape our collective ethics and commitments to equality and human dignity. When economic crisis, political disinvestment or cultural segregation threaten access to a diversity of artistic experience, we are compelled to advocate for the value of art as critical to our very human survival and to simultaneously facilitate the diverse kinds of artistic experience that support our collective resilience. The arts, and opportunities to experience them, are more dynamic and diverse than ever, flourishing in major arts institutions and non-hierarchical organizations, from artist-run spaces and community organizations to street festivals and pop-up exhibitions.

Arts leaders must match the ingenuity of today’s most exciting artistic experiments with our advocacy to define why this work matters. 

In this interactive workshop Rebekah E. Moore, PhD will draw on her leadership for Northeastern University’s Arts Administration and Cultural Entrepreneurship programs to facilitate strategies for effective arts advocacy and activism.
