Do you feel passionate about the arts and want to communicate your support to our elected officials? Toledo’s arts community needs outspoken advocates to step up and speak loudly on behalf of the arts. The Arts Commission can help to connect you to opportunities to advocate for the arts at the local, state, and federal levels.
Both the Ohio Citizens for the Arts and the Americans for the Arts websites contain a wealth of information about making your case for support of the arts. In addition, the sites offer easy-to-use tools to identify the appropriate elected officials at every level of government, and how to have effective, productive dialogue with them. For more information on how to get involved with local advocacy needs in the Greater Toledo area, please contact The Arts Commission for more information.
