March 4 and 5, the Americans for the Arts once again convenes more than 700 arts advocates from across the US for their 2019 National Arts Action Summit (NAAS). This empowering event commences with advocate training workshops and testimonials and moves straight to Capitol Hill, where attendees meet with legislators and staff members to share their stories about the impact and transformative power that the arts have in their communities.
Arts Alliance Illinois is proud to be our state’s team captain. As such, we are assembling an Illinois team to represent our respective and common interests across 18 congressional districts, creative disciplines, and organizational models. Attendees will not only experience interactive advocate training and peer-to-peer learning and networking, they will have a chance to speak directly with the individuals whose decisions influence our artistic futures.
