Advocating For The Arts Nationally And Locally


Jonathan Katz, chief executive officer of the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies (NASAA), and Theresa Cameron, Local Arts Agency Services Program Manager for Americans for the Arts, talked about advocating for the arts nationally and locally. Dr. Katz serves as one of the nation's primary spokespersons on behalf of public support for the arts and cultural activities. The 56 state and jurisdictional arts agencies of the United States created NASAA as their vehicle for arts policy development, advocacy, leadership development, research, information and communication. Cameron helps develop and implement programs and services that strengthen 5,000 local arts agencies.
