Advocacy Resource: Arts Council England

Arts Council England has published an easy-to-use advocacy toolkit, which is designed to help your organisation clearly demonstrate the value of public investment in arts and culture.

You can use the information to:

  •  build a relationship with your MP to explain why it's essential to invest in arts and culture, and how this applies to your organisation
  • tell your stakeholders and social networking followers why we need public investment in arts and culture, and encourage them to make the case to their MPs and local councillors
  • update your website with content on the benefits of public investment in arts and culture
  • develop key messages on public investment in arts and culture for your press releases and media activity.
