When I say, “the arts” what does that mean to you? Where do you see arts in your community? Tell me about a moment you connected with the arts. Last week I challenged you to go out and ask folks in your community these three questions. We’ve already gotten a handful of responses. I even saw some folks sharing what their responses on social media.

The Arts Advocacy Day activities continue and we challenge you to continue these conversations. Get out in your communities and talk about what art means (literally and figuratively) to the folks that live there. Last week we talked a lot about the importance of talking to strangers, of broadening our net. These questions not only give you incredibly important insight into your community but they can also help you build relationships.
Today and tomorrow we’ll be sharing more of what we’ve heard from you. Share your stories with us and with the field. You can follow along here or on Twitter (#NASadvocacy) and Facebook. Let’s continue to explore the value of the arts.
