ARTS ADVOCACY 101

ANNUAL ARTS EDUCATION CELEBRATIONS
AEMS believes that arts education is a civil and human right and we take a holistic and dynamic approach to advocacy so that we are always centering the needs of our constituents. We advocate through policy and legislation, influencing decision makers, participating in special initiatives, and by sharing resources with community members to support them in their own advocacy journeys.

This summer our high school Bloomberg Arts Interns from Arts for Learning Maryland helped conceptualize and design their own campaign for National Arts in Education Week by spotlighting careers in the various arts disciplines so that students, families, and the general public could comprehend the multiple pathways to careers in the creative economy through arts education.
