- National Arts Action Summit/Arts Advocacy Day each March brings together a broad cross section of America's cultural and civic organizations, along with nearly 500 grassroots advocates representing 45 states across the country, to underscore the importance of developing strong public policies and appropriating increased public funding for the arts.
- The National Arts Action Summit will take place on March 30-31, 2020 in Washington, DC. Hosted by Americans for the Arts and cosponsored by 85+ national arts organizations, the 32nd Arts Advocacy Day will be the largest gathering of its kind. Attendees will attend a full day of advocacy training to learn the latest research and legislative arts priorities from the experts on Monday, March 30. That evening, The Nancy Hanks Lecture at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is sure to inspire and motivate advocates. The following day, March 31, is Arts Advocacy Day when advocates take their passion, knowledge, and stories to Capitol Hill for meetings with their congressional leaders in support of issues like arts education policy, the charitable tax deduction, and funding for the National Endowment for the Arts.
- AACT is a co-sponsor of this event.
