CAA Arts and Humanities Advocacy Toolkit

College Art Association

As we reported in January, the College Art Association released a statement condemning the proposed budget cuts to the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities, among other federal agencies. Now they’ve created an Advocacy Toolkit “to help our members and anyone who wants to advocate for the arts and humanities. Information is power, after all. The Tool Kit information is pulled from a variety of sources that aid in forging partnerships, obtaining accurate data on the impact of the arts and humanities, and actions one can take in order to use your voice effectively.

They also encourage you to contact CAA since CAA staff will attend both Arts Advocacy Day and Humanities Advocacy Day. The more stories we can share as we meet with colleagues and representatives, the more influence we collectively bring to the table.

Help stop the elimination of the NEA and NEH

Even before his inauguration, the new President announced his intention to eliminate funding for the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). While named as part of an effort to cut the federal budget, these two organizations (and the The Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which he would privatize) make up only 0.02% of annual federal spending.

Various arts organization have come out denouncing this act and have proposed important ways supporters can fight against cuts:

h/t Washington Post, ARTnews, Art Forum, artnet, Hyperallergic, Inside Higher Ed, etc. You get the point.
