Advocacy is an amazing tool for creating positive change and outcomes, and a way to make best use of our democratic institutions. However, it’s often difficult to know where to start, what’s possible, and what works best. This Advocacy Toolkit (originally developed by TNA) starts at the very beginning, aims to empower musicians and music workers, and give them the tools to be effective advocates, both for themselves and for the industry as a whole.
