How is this workshop different from other workshops?

This program is not specifically focused solely upon arts advocacy, but seeks to connect artists to advocacy tools that can be used for ANY social and policy issues they wish to address. This program is specifically designed with arts professionals in mind because C4 Atlanta recognizes that they are often researching and actively creating work around social issues. We wish to connect art makers to the means to further their creative work by teaching key grassroots organizing and lobbying skills that can shape policies that affect those issues.
