Aligning Your Messages to Maximize Impact: California’s Efforts to Improve Access to High-Quality Public Arts Education
Limited Capacity filling up

Without access to a creative education, students are blocked out of one in six jobs in California. Spitfire, a strategic communication firm working on the front lines of the fight for gender equity, is pleased to partner with Create CA and the Los Angeles County Arts Commission on their campaigns to increase access to quality arts education to provide students with the skills they need to succeed in college, career and life.

In this combined skills-based and issue-based training, learn about how local and statewide leaders are aligning their messages to maximize impact, using the Arts Education Data Project and the Declaration of Student Rights as grounding examples. Then explore how to target specific audiences that can help advance your issue, understand your audience’s values and craft messages that will resonate with their interests. Participants will have the opportunity to develop message points within Spitfire’s message box.

During this session you will learn strategies for:
• Aligning messages to maximize impact;
• Selecting a very narrow, targeted audience – one that reflects the goal you are trying to achieve and will be most likely to respond to your call to action; and
• Taking into account the values and core concerns of the target audience that will be most likely to move that audience to act.
