After a lot of work behind the scenes, ArtsBuild Ontario is happy to announce some great news about our LEARN IT | BUILD IT | MANAGE IT Workshop and Webinars, and the Creative Spaces Mentoring Network 2021-2022.
LEARN IT | BUILD IT | MANAGE IT
LEARN IT | BUILD IT | MANAGE IT (LIBIMI) began as a two-part workshop and webinar series. That covered 4 key areas that support creative space capital projects:
- Alternative Financing
- Community Engagement
- Maintaining/Managing Creative Spaces
Part 1 began with workshops in several communities. However, as the health and safety of our participants is of the utmost importance, and in light of concerns regarding workshop attendance during the COVID-19 pandemic, ABO has decided to change these workshops into one-on-one virtual sessions to complement the part 2 webinars.
Our Virtual Consultative Sessions kick off with finishing LIBIMI Part 1! Part 1 covers the topics of Alternative Financing for Capital Projects and Engaging Community in Capital Project and will conclude with two Virtual Consultative Sessions for participants within the Cambridge area.
In these sessions, participants in and near Cambridge with a creative space project in mind will have an opportunity to sign up for a one-on-one consultation with presenters Julia Vlad and Jeremy Freiburger. Presenters will offer guidance and perspective based on their expertise and pertaining to their session topics.
Cambridge Virtual Consultative Sessions are January 12 & 19 2021. Learn more about them here, or apply for a spot here. Applications close on December 10, 2020.
We will have more information about the LIBIMI Part 2 Webinars in the coming months, so please keep a lookout for that!
