Arts Matter Workshop Series

Triangle Community Foundation has partnered with ARTS Action Research to bring a series of workshops to the Triangle designed specifically to help nonprofit arts organizations with planning, resource development, knowledge building, and assessment to further their artistic missions.

You’re invited to participate!

Over the next year, the Foundation and ARTS Action Research colleagues Nello McDaniel and Anne Dunning will host five workshops:

  • Monday, August 26, 2019: Organizational Process & Planning
  • Tuesday, November 19, 2019: Growing Audiences
  • Tuesday, February 4, 2020: Relational Fundraising & Development
  • Tuesday, April 7, 2020: Leading Arts Boards
  • Tuesday, May 12, 2020: Knowledge-Based Assessment

These workshops are free and designed to be relevant for nonprofit arts organizations across the arts spectrum, from performing, visual, and presenting, to service arts organizations. While there will be themes and concepts referenced across the workshops, it is not necessary to attend all five. Come to one or come to all!

Nello and Anne will share tangible strategies for improving organizational processes through an arts centric approach and there will be opportunities to network with fellow arts nonprofits and Foundation staff.

We hope you’ll join us for the first workshop!

Workshop 1: Organizational Process and Planning: The Plan and the Path

What: This first workshop will focus on two closely related but separate aspects of organizational process and planning. First is articulating, affirming or reaffirming an organization’s core values and vision narrative, making sure that all involved are clear about why this work and why this organization. The second aspect is about connecting the why and what with the organization’s actions and ambitions. While keeping eyes on the vision of the future, it’s the immediate path that will present new and/or unanticipated opportunities previously not considered.

When: Monday, August 26th from 1-3 PM

Where: Triangle Community Foundation, 800 Park Offices Drive, Suite 201, Research Triangle Park, NC 27709

Space is limited. RSVP here to reserve your spot today!

ARTS Action Research works with performing, visual, literary, presenting and service arts organizations in both single and cross discipline configurations. AAR’s Team of Associates address a range of needs from the most basic developmental to complex restructuring and repositioning of veteran arts organizations.
