Capacity Building Workshops

Come Together to build stronger arts organizations and communities. This one-day conference for the staff and boards of arts organizations will explore important areas where organizations can become stronger and more effective.

Arts organizations are increasingly taking an active role in advancing community and economic development that helps build stronger, more livable communities. To be successful, it takes more than simply having a seat at the planning table. Topics will include building partnerships, board leadership, successful fundraising, measuring organizational impact and more. The conference will feature a wide array of field professionals and academic faculty.
