Funding for cultural affairs in Florida has dropped nearly 90% versus a year ago, making Florida among the worst states in the country for arts funding.
The Art of Advocacy summit aims to help Pinellas County arts and culture organizations by sharing best practices on getting your message out and securing funding.
The event is sponsored by Creative Pinellas and the Pinellas Community Foundation, with support from Clearwater Arts Alliance, St. Petersburg Arts Alliance, Dunedin Fine Arts Center, and Tampa Bay Businesses for Culture & the Arts.
B2 Communications’ Kyle Parks will moderate the Aug. 17 event at SPCEpicenter in Clearwater.
