Leveraging Federal Policy: Successful Case Studies from the Field
Teresa Eyring, executive director, TCG, Moderator
Theatre leaders around the country have successfully navigated federal policy and appropriations opportunities to the benefit of their theatres. TCG’s executive director, Teresa Eyring, will moderate a panel featuring advocates from Theatre Members with reports on a variety of federal legislative and policy issues:
- Gerard Stropnicky from Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble participated in Arts Advocacy Day 2011, met with his Tea Party Member of Congress, and won his support of the NEA in a subsequent vote. He returned for Arts Advocacy 2012 to thank his Member of Congress and to hold onto that support.
- Josh Loar, sound supervisor at Yale Repertory Theatre has helped influence the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to better respond to the needs of theatre companies with regard to their wireless microphones.
- Christopher Moses, education director at the Alliance Theatre will provide an update on their U.S. Department of Education multi-year grant and arts education advocacy efforts to preserve this funding stream.
- Grace Grillet, Managing Director of The People’s Light & Theatre Company will report on field efforts to preserve the charitable deduction.
