Supporting people of color shaping arts advocacy

NALAC opens Advocacy Leadership Institute applications

Today, the National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures opens a call for applications for the 2023 NALAC Advocacy Leadership Institute.

The NALAC Advocacy Leadership Institute is a two-month virtual program that culminates with a three-day intensive held in Washington. The intensive will include sessions on Capitol Hill and with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute, National Endowment for the Arts, and various Smithsonian Institutions.

Through the NALAC ALI, participants are equipped with necessary tools to communicate effectively with elected officials, lead proactive efforts in their own communities, and understand the frameworks involved in shaping cultural policy.

Participation in ALI is open to U.S. and Puerto Rico-based artists, arts administrators, and cultural workers. Interested applicants are encouraged to visit the NALAC website to view the eligibility requirements and learn more about the ALI program.
