The Conservative Case for Supporting the Arts

June 27, 2020, 9:00 AM - 10:15 AM

Session Type: Panel

The majority of state legislatures are red. In this session, three veterans of arts advocacy in red states, as well as current and former conservative elected officials, will teach attendees how and why it’s worth making their case for the arts to conservatives, and how to do it best.
Learning Objectives:
  • Expand your advocacy strategies and vocabulary.
  • Learn how to make “frenemies" and work with people who don’t want to be worked with.
  • Learn from current/past elected officials on how best to make your case for the arts.
