Artist Communities Alliance (ACA) is part of a coalition of national arts and culture associations and nonprofits working to advance arts-friendly policies at a national level. We collaborate with our cultural advocacy partners to deepen resources for the arts and share stories of impact from our member network with funders and policymakers.
We recommend the following resources for better understanding public policy advocacy and effective strategies for engagement:
- Alternate Roots - A group of artists and cultural organizers based in the Southern United States focused on social and economic justice, working to dismantle all forms of oppression – everywhere.
- League of American Orchestra Policy Advocacy 101 - Guidance for arts organization on the how and why of getting involved in public policy advocacy.
- National Assembly of State Arts Agencies - A national, not-for-profit, nonpartisan organization that champions public support for the arts in America.
- Performing Arts Alliance Advocacy Basics - Useful information for connecting with lawmakers and building relationships.
