Give Voice to a Creative State

Ra Joy, Executive Director of Arts Alliance Illinois, will be presenting "Give Voice to a Creative State: The Future of Arts Advocacy in Illinois" as part of the Cultural Policy Workshop.

The Cultural Policy Center breaks from its usual lecture format this week to host a discussion with Mr. Joy. Through its members, partners, and advocates, Arts Alliance Illinois operates as the hub of the largest, most connected statewide arts advocacy network in the country. Join us to discuss policy opportunities and challenges facing the arts and cultural sector in Illinois.

Ra Joy serves as a principal spokesperson on behalf of funding and support for the arts and cultural activities in Illinois. As executive director of Arts Alliance Illinois, a statewide arts advocacy network, Ra sets and implements the organization's strategic goals and manages its operations. By uniquely combining advocacy, coalition building, and policy-relevant research, the Alliance has become a powerful and effective voice for the arts sector in Illinois and beyond.
