“Humans throughout history have used the arts to express themselves to find beauty, attain a higher level of meaning and better understand themselves and their culture. The arts are the most human form of communication and expression.” A Report on Arts Education in Wisconsin: The State Superintendent’s Blue Ribbon Commission on Arts Education. 2000.

WAME’s FREE Day of Action Training
Our first day of training was a success with 23 eager music educators, music students, music merchants, and community members in attendance! More training dates to come in a variety of locations throughout the state, keep checking in!
This special training session is FREE for anyone interested in learning how to advocate most effectively with local and state legislators. The training session will share and define an “ask” for an upcoming Day of Action, which calls for proactive, face-to-face meetings with as many state senators and representatives as can be scheduled. Many of these meetings will take place at the State Capitol and in legislators’ home districts. The training will cover how to set up face-to-face meetings with state senators or assembly representatives and review strategies for effective communication with lawmakers. It is WAME’s goal to have music educators, parents and community members representing all 33 state senate districts in attendance.
