In Building a Culture of Arts Advocacy in Houston: #2 Building Power, participants will develop an understanding of what collective power looks like and how to build collective power by drawing from the work of community organizers.

Access to funding for the arts in Houston (a mix of private wealth, foundations, and public funding) has not historically supported equitable outcomes. The arts sector in Houston has grown, but funding has not kept up with the growth to provide young artists and cultural workers with the opportunities needed to thrive.

Building a Culture of Arts Advocacy in Houston is a series of workshops designed to empower folks like you to use your voices and become active participants in co-creating an arts-filled city. This program engenders courage, creativity, accountability, and know-how through active participation and group reflection.

Led by Liyen Chong, a core organizer at Arts Accountability Houston (AAH), this workshop draws from the successes AAH achieved in building a grassroots-led coalition and advocating for artists and small to mid-sized arts organizations at the local level.

In Building a Culture of Arts Advocacy in Houston: #2 Building Power, participants will develop an understanding of what collective power looks like and how to build collective power by drawing from the work of community organizers.

This workshop is the second in a series of three workshops. Please register for the next event too! Access links in bio. This workshop is made possible with support from Fresh Arts and hosted by Lawndale Arts Center.
