Enlisting one million arts advocates to mobilize support for the arts and arts education Join for Free!
Attention New Hampshire Arts Advocates! Have you asked a question about the arts to any of the 2016 Presidential candidates this year? If so, we want to hear about it! On Tuesday, September 15th at 12:00 PM we invite you to participate in a conference call for New Hampshire arts advocates. The purpose is to de-brief and share useful strategies for how to engage a presidential candidate with a specific, positive question about his or her position on the arts and arts education. Please join your fellow Granite Staters by calling in at noon and sharing your expertise. To participate in the conference call, dial (712) 432-1699 and use the passcode 325220#

Don’t you think that everyone who runs for President, no matter their political party affiliation should share his/her vision for investing in the arts? We do!

We will be holding more free advocacy training events in New Hampshire in the coming months. For now, check out photos of the event and the ArtsVote New Hampshire page for online advocacy tools.
