Arts advocates from across the country will gather virtually March 28-30 for the National Arts Action Summit, now in its 35th consecutive year.

Hosted by Americans for the Arts in collaboration with national, state, and local organizational partners, the National Arts Action Summit is the largest gathering of its kind. This year’s advocacy training will center on the annual appropriations process and the seven creative workforce bills currently being considered by Congress.

For the first time, to make this long-standing event more accessible and impactful, there is no registration fee to attend the National Arts Action Summit for both individuals and partner organizations. Register here.

Grassroots advocates across the country convene digitally to learn the latest in arts policy through issue-specific briefings, advocacy training, and networking opportunities. Advocates gain a depth of knowledge from policy experts at Americans for the Arts and many national, state, regional, and local partners. Recordings of these webinars are also available for replay whenever you like to refresh your understanding of the issues. Session topics include arts and culture agency funding, arts education, the creative economy, and more.
