Arts Advocacy Program
The objectives of BCAA's Arts Advocacy Program are to inform the arts community about issues impacting their lives now and in the future and encourage their activism. This includes: voter registration; publicizing the value of the arts and the need for government funding, to candidates for public office, identifying their position on support for the arts, and educating the community accordingly; monitoring legislative activities; and alerting the community about the impact of pending legislation. The goal is to remain aware of legislative issues, stay in constant contact with policy makers to educate and influence their policy decisions.
Join us for the Arts for Colorado Arts Advocacy Day. AFC makes it easy for you to tell your legislators why the arts deserve to be funded. Connect and network with fellow arts advocates and learn more about innovative advocacy tools.

Cultural participants have significantly better results than non-participants for 101 out of 144 cross-tabulations (or 70%). Cultural participants have significantly worse results for only 10 of the cross-tabulations (or 7%). Read the entire article.
