It's important to reach out to the public and talk about why #culturematters
As a larger organisation, you're in a great position to make the case for art and culture. We need your help to make the case for public funding to the public, press and politicians.
You might have staff who are skilled in communications or advocacy, or who have relationships with journalists, MPs or local politicians. You will also have lots of stories to tell about how your work positively impacts people's lives.
You don't have to use every part of this toolkit - have a look through and decide how you think you can best make the case for art and culture.
The media can be a powerful tool in communicating with all audiences
Local and national politicians are the key decision-makers on public funding.
Your relationship with the local council is an important one to develop and maintain.
These are collaborations between local authorities and businesses
