Tuesday Talks: Why Arts Advocacy Matters

As the Arts & Culture industries work to recover, hear from OCA's Executive Director on why continued Arts Advocacy Matters!

Angela P. Meleca is the Executive Director for Ohio Citizens for the Arts (OCA), a member-driven, not-for-profit, grassroots arts advocacy organization working to benefit the citizens of Ohio. OCA is the only statewide organization that advocates for increased funding and public support for arts and culture across Ohio. Meleca comes to OCA with more than 25 years of experience in journalism, politics, public relations/marketing, and the arts.

Before her career in the arts, Meleca was a political journalist and press secretary for the Ohio Senate Majority Caucus. She has extensive experience in communications, media, and public relations.

A Columbus, Ohio native, Angela earned her B.A. from The Ohio State University with a concentration in Political Science and Journalism. Her professional affiliations include serving on the Wexner Center for the Arts Donor Circle Council, Columbus Museum of Development Committee, Columbus College of Art and Design Guest Lecturer and Student Mentor Program, and the Dublin Arts Council Board of Directors.
