Click here for Arts Advocacy volunteer opportunities.

The Arts Advocacy program forms relationships with the community to develop an understanding of how the arts can benefit the Fox Cities community with the help of Lawrence University. Our goal is to form partnerships that will help enrich the lives of the people around us and support local organizations. This program also aims to be a liaison between Lawrentians and various organizations in the Appleton community devoted to the arts. The hope is to form better connections between the needs of the organizations and the interests of Lawrence students to help create a diverse community that acknowledges the gifts of every individual.
