Introducing NDEO's Advocacy Blog Series

Shannon Dooling

Introducing a new feature on NDEO's Behind the Curtain Blog: The Advocacy Blog Series. This series will explain more about advocating for the arts on the local, state, and national levels. In this series, members of NDEO’s Advocacy Committee will provide updates on the ways that NDEO is advocating for dance education, as well as tools and resources for dance educators to use in their own advocacy efforts.


Read the first post in this series, It's the Season for Advocacy: We Need Your Voice, by Stephanie Milling, Advisory Director of Advocacy, here. This post focuses on The National Arts Action Summit, a multi-day event bringing together arts advocates from across the country. The 2019 summit consists of a full day of training on March 4th, followed by the The Nancy Hanks Lecture on Arts and Public Policy at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and concludes with Arts Advocacy Day on March 5th when advocates meet with their congressional leaders. NDEO is proud to be a partner of the National Arts Action Summit and encourages all members to join us in Washington D.C. for this important event in March!
