Access to Power: Building Political Clout for the Arts
The newest issue of The NASAA Advocate, "Access to Power: Building Political
Clout for the Arts," provides strategies for cultivating relationships
with politicians that help advocates move an arts agenda forward. It includes
such proven methods as working with new legislators as soon as they take
office, recruiting influential arts and community leaders to "open the
door," and focusing on what matters most to politicians. This latest addition

links to the power centers in government. As a service to the arts field,
NASAA is making this publication available for downloading at no cost.
