Arts Advocacy Arguments: Navigating the Network
MetadataShow full item record
In pursuit of increased public financial support, arts advocates strategically align arts and culture with larger policy issues like economic and community development, academic achievement and social development for youth. Further, these arguments navigate a complicated network of organizations, connected in support of arts and culture, to reach their audiences. Utilizing instrumental collective case study, this study explores how an arts advocacy network of professional non‐profit theatre in Oregon contributes to the dissemination of information and arts advocacy efforts; what influences how arts advocacy arguments are framed and articulated and how those arguments move within an arts advocacy nework.
