Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs
The Division of Cultural Affairs (DCA) funds special programs that further the aims of Culture Builds Florida. A DCA representative sits ex officio on the FAAE Board of Directors.
Certain service organizations have developed a special working relationship with FAAE:
Florida Cultural Alliance (FLCA): develops statewide strategy and messages for advocacy for the arts with a primary focus on arts organizations. FLCA cooperates with FAAE in developing the legislative position paper related to arts education. FAAE and FLCA share action alerts and encourage their members to support both aspects of arts and cultural funding.
Florida Art Educators Association (FAEA), Florida Association for Theatre Education (FATE) Florida Dance Education Organization (FDEO), and Florida Music Educators Association (FMEA) are the four professional service organizations serving arts educators. Each of these service organizations has a liaison on the FAAE board and works with FAAE to coordinate shared goals. FMEA takes a lead in following legislation and policy that impacts arts education and disseminates that information through FLCA, FAAE, and the other professional service organizations.
