Being an arts advocate is an essential skill for every arts and cultural worker, and right now our industry is counting on the community to use our voices to ensure the arts can continue. Please join the American Theatre Wing for a special Masterclass with our friends at Be An Arts Hero who will give you the tools and resources needed to be an effective arts advocate.

Together we will discuss the economic facts and figures that detail the pandemic’s impact on the Arts & Culture sector, and examine what cultural policy opportunities can and should exist in the short, medium, and long term.

As artists and arts workers, we need to own our power as advocates for our industry’s future. It is critical to know the tools and techniques available to empower your narrative and become a civically engaged citizen of our field. By amplifying YOUR voice and platform, you can bring us one step closer to opening nights again. We hope you will join us and learn how to be an effective arts and culture advocate.
