Professional development for a more resilient arts sector
These workshops cover a variety of topics to help artists and arts organizations gain skills and knowledge to run their businesses.
Leadership and the Body – Strategies for Generative Collaboration
Thurs, Oct 6 | 3:00 – 5:00PM
In this joyful, action-based, on-your-feet workshop, we will explore practices that support collaboration by developing our ability to fully perceive and respond to what a moment is asking of us. Using creative principles that artists work with regularly in the studio, we will discover ways of recognizing our default habits as members of an ensemble, organization, community or team, and cultivate practices that help us expand into new, imaginative possibilities. This in-person workshop will take place at the Suncor Energy Hall, MUN School of Music.

Volunteers make a critical contribution to the sustainability of the nonprofit sector, enabling our organizations to deliver programming and services, and connecting us to new swaths of the community. It really does “take a village”, and volunteers are an important part of the team. Join us to learn about creating traditional and unique volunteer opportunities in the arts, and how to attract and engage volunteers from across the community.
