Performing Arts Alliance

Speak Up!

It is up to us - the artists, administrators and audience members - to explain the value of the performing arts to public policy makers. It is commonplace to hear from elected officials or their staffs how wonderful the arts are. The challenge for us is turning that support into genuine understanding and commitment. Advocacy is about educating and informing elected officials, the public, and the media about the importance of the performing arts.
