Speak Up for The Arts

Speak Up! For the Arts is an Arts Advocacy Toolkit for parents and teachers that helps demonstrate why the arts are important in the education process and how to develop your voice for the arts. We have collaborated with Ohio Citizens for the Arts and the Ohio Alliance for Arts Education to provide the most current and effective advocacy materials to help you work to keep the arts in your school.
