12th Annual Arts Advocacy Day

Highlighted by a rousing keynote address by Margy Waller, Senior Fellow at the TOPOS Partnership, the 12th Annual Dallas Arts Advocacy Day on Tuesday, April 23, drew an enthusiastic crowd of nearly 100 arts leaders and supporters.


Held at the Latino Cultural Center, the afternoon included the Artist’s Statement by Tony Browne, Director of Bandan Koro African Drum & Dance; presentation of the Jac Alder Award to longtime arts champion Veletta Forsythe Lill; and two workshops: “Principles of Effective Advocacy” led by Ann Graham, Executive Director of Texans for the Arts, and “Dallas Cultural Plan – Now What?” presented by the Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs and Cultural Plan Steering Committee. The day wrapped up with a refreshing hour at Deep Ellum Art Co.


Thanks to everyone who participated in this annual event, but especially to all those who advocate for the arts every day.
