About this Event

The LEARN IT | BUILD IT | MANAGE IT webinar series are the online version of the LEARN IT | BUILD IT | MANAGE IT workshops that ArtsBuild Ontario has offered in the past - with two more workshops coming to Guelph & Cambridge in 2020!

This webinar series offers four webinars focused on the topics of community engagement and alternative financing to support capital projects.

Engaging Community for Capital Projects Part 2:

Going Public

Approaching the public is an important moment and you want to ensure your method matches you, your audience and the desired outcome of your efforts. Building on information presented in previous LEARN IT | BUILD IT | MANAGE IT workshops and webinars on community engagement, Jeremy Freiburger of Cobalt Connects will discuss creative ways to reach the public, gather and measure data, and the communication tools that make going public effective in this webinar.

This webinar is intended for non-profit arts, culture, heritage, faith and community organizations looking to engage community in their current or upcoming creative space project.
