Get to know our Arts Advocacy Day Phone Bank partner, Artistic Rebuttal Project, and its founder, Amy Scheidegger, who originally came up with the idea for the event.
We are so excited to have several different community organizations working with us on our first ever Arts Advocacy Day Phone Bank on March 25th! Working with all these groups has allowed us to offer four different locations, making this event more accessible to the many arts and culture advocates who live and work in Greater Philadelphia.
We recently reached out to Amy Scheidegger, founder of the Artistic Rebuttal Project (ARP), who came up with the idea of the phone bank. Our partnership with the ARP is a natural fit, as advocacy is at the core of everything ARP does. The Project works tirelessly to advocate for the rights of artists and works to ensure that artists are better educated about the history of artists in America. ARP also works "to promote the creative process as a career" and also offers an outlet for people in the creative community to share their artistic experiences. The Project also advocates for the importance of arts education and works to encourage our communities to create art.
We are looking forward to working with Amy on March 25th, as she will be leading the arts advocacy charge at our Center City location at CultureWorks Greater Philadelphia.
