Would you rather? Creative Community Edition

A “Would you rather” activity for arts advocacy


When it comes to advocating for policy, there are so many possible roads ahead to make our creative sector a better place for artists, arts nonprofits, creative businesses, and arts educators. Let us know what you want to see out of our advocacy work for individual artists, arts nonprofits, arts businesses, and arts education, and have some fun while you’re at it.

This Spring, the Governor and the Illinois legislature included $50 million in relief and recovery grants dedicated to the creative sector in its FY23 budget. This win wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work of advocates across the state.
