30th Annual Arts Advocacy Day, March 20, 2017, Washington, DC

Maria Guralnik, assistant professor of practice in arts management and entrepreneurship, and a group of arts management students were among the over 700 dedicated arts supporters representing educational, civic, and cultural organizations from across the United States who gathered March 20, 2017 in Washington, DC for the 30th annual Arts Advocacy Day.  

Hosted by Americans for the Arts, participants deepened their understanding of how government funding and policy impacts the work of artists and creative organizations while developing advocacy skills through a range of seminars and peer-to-peer workshops.

The one-day intensive field trip was capped by the Nancy Hanks lecture delivered to a capacity audience at the Kennedy Center by eloquent Ford Foundation President Darren Walker.
