Survivor 101...The Next Generation Workshops

Following on the success and feedback of the inaugural "Survivor 101" workshop in November 2012, the Regional Cultural Development Advisory Committee, through Metro Vancouver, has partnered with four municipalities throughout Metro to present SURVIVOR 101...THE NEXT GENERATION!

This 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!

The first two workshops in the series are open for registration:

Getting Your Funding Ducks in a Row
