Student Advocates for the Arts

About the Organization
Student Advocates for the Arts is a grassroots student organization dedicated to educating on and advocating for public policy affecting the arts in the United States. Founded in 2002 by graduate students in the Arts Administration Program at Teachers College, Columbia University, SAA engages students in hands-on lobbying, workshops on advocacy and cultural policy, and discussions on the American system for funding the arts.

Student Advocates for the Arts meets bi-monthly in Breech (please check Facebook for specific dates, times and locations).
