Community Arts - Capacity Building Workshops

Following on the success and feedback from the inaugural Survivor 101 workshop last Fall, the Regional Cultural Development Advisory Committee, through Metro Vancouver, has partnered with four municipalities to present Survivor 101 - The Next Generation.

The Next Generation series will focus on funding, audience development, marketing and board development - key areas that participants expressed an interest in learning more about. If you are a staff member, board member, volunteer, performer, artist, start-up visionary, or tenaciously holding on to a community arts organization in the terminal stages of decline, these workshops are for you!

Next up is the Audience Development workshop, hosted by the North Vancouver Arts Office on November 21st, 1:00-4:00pm, Lynn Valley Library Community Room.

Audience Development… where is everyone?

Heather Redfern - Executive Director, The Cultch
Joseph Bardsley - Development Manager, Vancouver Opera
Colleen Maybin - Community Engagement Manager, Vancouver Opera
Ruth Payne - Visual Arts Coordinator, Ferry Building Gallery, West Vancouver

This savvy group of arts animateurs will share their knowledge and provide inspiration for small and mid-sized organizations on how to reach out to new audiences in unique ways. Workshop participants will take home practical tips and tools that will help them to connect with audiences of all ages and inclinations.
