Grassroots action, transformative experiences needed to improve public funding for the arts

Regarding public funding for the arts, change has to come
from the grassroots up. Are you the missing piece?
Apply to be an advocacy captain today.

"Without large numbers of people having newly transformative experiences with the arts, the political capital available is insufficient to support significant improvement in public funding or, more generally, public policy for the arts. Such change has got to come from the grassroots up. And it is the arts community’s job (who else is going to take it on?) to make it happen if it is to happen."

--Doug Borwick, President, Association of Arts Administration Educators
