CCA Advocacy Primer
The Canadian Conference of the Arts’ advocacy primer contains steps to develop advocacy activities, strategies for effective advocacy, tips on how to communicate with candidates, ways to get the message out, tips on how to “make the pitch”, and more. The advocacy primer provides bullet-point suggestions for each of the five effective advocacy strategies: be brief; be strategic; be appreciative; be informative; and be respectful.
The advocacy section of the CCA’s website also contains “handy quotes” for arts advocacy and “examples of arts for life”. A statistical fact sheet is available at http://www.ccarts.ca/en/advocacy/publications/toolkits/artsstats.htm.
