Hands-on Training for Advocates

Hands-on Training for Advocates

As part of our service to advocates throughout Los Angeles County, Arts for LA will host a series of workshops to help bolster advocacy efforts around arts education in the region's school districts.

These workshops will provide you with tools and hands-on experience to increase the effectiveness of local advocacy.  

We have no workshops scheduled currently, but check back soon or sign up for our mailing list to hear about the next round of opportunities.
