With the next federal election likely for the first quarter of 2022, arts organisations are gearing up for big impact.
This year I’ve worked with a range of artform, cultural and place-based organisations, informal sector groups and formal consortia, as well as peak bodies across Australia, to develop a diverse array of advocacy approaches.
Great advocacy, however, doesn’t need formal planning, and nor is it something we only switch on come election time. Great advocacy is an ongoing conversation that strengthens our communities by strengthening our voices.
Where to make a start?
