Professional Development

Professional Development

Professional development for individual artists as well as organizations has always been a cornerstone of the organization’s programming. Each year, Arts Connection offers – either through the support of its own staff or through hiring outside consultants – free professional development classes, covering topics including grant writing, cultural planning, and marketing and business planning. In addition to these professional practice workshops, Arts Connection hosts community mixers, intended to bring together arts professionals, venue owners, producers and community members to share projects and exhibitions and to promote conversations about potential future collaborations.

Stay tuned for more information about this year’s Teaching Artist Training Series.
