Visibility of the Arts & Cultural Sector Workshops

Visibility of the Arts & Cultural Sector - Breakout 1

9:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m. — Opportunity Everywhere - Part I

Workshop Description: What if you could approach audience development as a "both-and" proposition--advancing artistic excellence while energizing public engagement? To be "entrepreneurial" is to boldly explore options and opportunities for artistic excellence, financial viability, and community connection. There is no end to that pursuit. But there is a beginning! Now is the time to invest your whole team with the insights and skills that can reveal new pathways to audience engagement.
