Federal Arts Advocacy Days

National Arts Advocacy Day

On February 14, 2011, President Obama proposed a $3.7 trillion 2012 federal budget. That budget proposal is the starting point for negotiations about several issues that impact arts and culture. Be a part of the dialog to inform the budget process by joining us on April 4th and 5th in Washington, D.C. for National Arts Advocacy Day.

Hosted by Americans for the Arts, this 24th annual, two-day event provides arts and culture advocates with an opportunity to learn how to effectively communicate with their members of Congress and then to actually do so before the budget process concludes. Take the opportunity to gather with advocates from across the nation, to be inspired by their momentum, to be heard.

In addition to finding out more about federal arts and culture issues and attending meetings on Capitol Hill, you will also have the chance to hear from celebrated artists and legislators as they present a broader perspective on the arts policy and social issues currently impacting arts and culture.

Grow your national arts and culture consciousness and share your passion in a way that makes a difference. Join us for National Arts Advocacy Day.

Local Arts Advocacy Day

If your budget or schedule won’t permit a trip to Washington, D.C., take part in Bucks County's local arts advocacy day which coincides with the national event for just those reasons.

Bucks County

The Arts & Cultural Council of Bucks County is hosting its 2nd annual celebration of National Arts Advocacy Day on Monday, April 4th. At 10am they will host an advocacy workshop titled, “Communicating with Legislators in the Current Economic Climate.” Following the workshop, they will walk to the Bucks County Courthouse for a rally at noon to “raise awareness of the importance of arts and culture in the life of the county.”
