Tune in to this session to hear how state arts agencies can create "sticking power" for an idea, support policy change, or alter public behaviors and expectations. Featuring the public will-building framework used by Metropolitan Group for its public and private sector clients, the seminar explores how arts councils can build public will by tapping into closely held personal values and blending grass-roots outreach and social marketing tactics with traditional media tools. The building public will framework challenges us to think strategically about how we can tap into the public's needs and values over time, and not just for advocacy, but in other communications—our planning and our program design, too.
