How can I help?

You can help with art shows, attend meetings as an arts advocate, contact legislators, and be a resource for other art educators.  This can take just a couple hours of your life (or more if you have time), but is so helpful!

 

Mission:

The charge of the advocacy committee shall be to empower our members by promoting art education throughout the state of Minnesota and beyond.

This includes:

Communicating the value of art education by:

  • Providing information on AEM’s noteworthy activities to the Communications Committee for press releases to general media
  • Submitting articles for other educational  media venues

Training members to:

  • Serve on related art and education boards statewide to represent AEM to those interests
  • Present on arts education related issues at other related institutions’ conferences

Managing Arts outreach activities, including:

  • Youth Art Month
  • Scholastic Art
  • MNSHSL Show
  • State Fair
  • Member art shows

Building relationships and partnerships with commercial interests, including:

  • Conference vendors
  • Donors/supporters

 

If you like to help with art shows, talk to legislators, and talk about why arts matter, Advocacy is for you!  Contact Laura to help!
