Advocacy

Advocacy may not be part of your job description or class schedule, but it is an important part of your work. Advocacy is more than simply the act of speaking or writing in support of something. As a theatre educator or student, each time you step onto a stage or into a classroom you are affirming the value and purpose of your subject area as part of a well-rounded school curriculum. Even if your theatre program is not at risk for cutbacks or elimination, a proactive, well-organized effort to build support for what you do can ensure that a strong and articulate community of advocates is ready to speak up on your behalf when a crisis arises.
