Annual Arts Advocacy Plan

Expanding our outreach and awareness across four counties

The future of Central Florida, where all people have access to the arts, is entirely possible. To help realize that vision we’ve developed a scalable Annual Arts Advocacy Plan that will expand our outreach, increase awareness, and grow arts advocacy partnerships with elected officials.

Across Lake, Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties, we’re spearheading outreach programs and developing toolkits to bring on new advocates and rally for increased arts funding.
