2013 is our year of new – new programs, new opportunities for learning and exploration into topics that are important to all of us in the arts. Developed as a part of a two year initiative that brings together seven non-profit and private sector partners, our new offerings will help you build, manage, finance and learn about arts facilities more effectively. Our innovative delivery methods will connect you with industry experts and peers who’ve been there, done that.
Over the course of 2013, we will be introducing new tools, resources and services surrounding topics like capital projects, energy efficiency, ongoing facilities management, loan financing, project management and accessibility.
