In the context of COVID challenges, does anyone have a story or example of Advocacy, Messaging, and/or Casemaking that demonstrates innovative or effective strategy or practice to keep the arts and culture sector valued and positioned for resources or opportunity?  This can be about your efforts locally or statewide. AFTA is looking for instructive practical stories for a brief informal presentation and dialogue on the topic for a fall AFTA Member EX(change). We launched Member EX(change)s in May to extend opportunities for our broader membership (i.e. not just those affiliated with formal AFTA councils) to connect with one another as they’re navigating these trying times. They’ve been well received and generative!  Please share your example here and/or email  Thank you and I hope to hear from you!
