Advocating for the arts
Advocacy for the arts has been one of the central topics of our meetings and research activities in the past years. This publication and interviews reveal the challenges and peculiarities of advocating for the arts in today’s reality.
Our newest Toolkit builds on the discussions on advocacy held at IETM meetings since 2008 and on concrete actions carried out by IETM members in different countries. The publication summarises the key elements of advocacy, presents some inspiring practical cases from different countries, and offers links to practical resources - all freely available online - to develop a thorough advocacy action.
Complementing the publication’s text are a series of articles we commissioned in partnership with HowlRound which bring some examples of how advocacy can be undertaken on a local level.
