Report on national arts advocacy campaigns released

09 July 2010, Australia

IFACCA is delighted to release D’Art Report 16 National arts advocacy campaigns: overview of case studies and good practice.

Arts advocacy is a key challenge, one shared by government agencies and arts communities around the world.

Based on desk research and responses to a survey distributed in August 2009 to the IFACCA network, this report provides a platform for the exchange of information and ideas about arts advocacy by exploring a range of campaigns currently being undertaken or planned by national arts funding agencies.
We thank the Australia Council for the Arts and the Salzburg Global Seminar for their financial contribution to this research project.

Updates on this research project and links to online resources can be found at a dedicated page on the IFACCA website: IFACCA is interested in expanding on the information contained in this report and welcomes case studies or information about other international, national and regional campaigns aimed at raising awareness of the arts. If you would like to contribute, please contact the IFACCA secretariat at [email protected].

IFACCA’s report is the first stage of a research project that identifies campaign success factors, challenges, strengths and weaknesses with a view to exploring the feasibility of developing, with others, a coordinated international campaign to promote the value of the arts.

A summary of this research will soon be available in French and Spanish
