Upon signing up as a member of DAA, you will be asked to commit to carrying out two acts of advocacy in support of the arts in Delaware, which correlate to the list you see below. These are all very simple tasks, which many of us already do in our day-to-day lives. The idea is to see how easy it is for you to help keep the arts and arts education strong in the First State!
