Event description

Description

Everyone has a story with the power to inspire others and influence decision makers. During this workshop, attendees will learn how to craft their stories, from elevator speech to long form speeches, geared towards advocacy efforts that support arts-positive policies.

Participants will:

  • Receive a briefing on the State of the Arts in Chicago Public Schools and updates on local, state and national arts education policy initiatives

  • Identify personal and/or organizational stories and align them with an advocacy message

  • Learn some tips on connecting with legislators, developing an "elevator speech," and laying the groundwork for longer-form speeches and talks geared towards in-person advocacy

Light refreshments will be provided.
