IFACCA Good Practice Guide on Arts Advocacy (December 2013)

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.

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. 

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 is available in French and Spanish.
