A Handbook to Support Arts Advocacy Day and Year-Round Efforts

The Congressional Arts Handbook, compiled annually to support the work of participants at Arts Advocacy Day, was recently released to support year-round advocacy efforts and this year's National Arts Action Summit, which brings together arts advocates and cultural and civic organizations from across the country on March 4-5 in Washington, DC.

This resource, sharing the spirit of Arts Advocacy Day -organized by Americans for the Arts and cosponsored by more than 85 national organizations-, "seeks to underscore the importance of developing strong public policies and appropriating increased public funding for the arts," as the organization states.

Within its pages, according to Americans for the Arts, advocates will find facts, figures, related legislation, research, talking points, and other resources to help inform arts advocacy.
