Learning Series

learning series 2

 

ArtsBuild Ontario is proud to present The Learning Series, a collection of learning opportunities for arts facilities around ArtsBuild’s core programs, including SpaceFinder, the Creative Spaces Mentoring Network and Asset Planner for the Arts.

This webinar and workshop series will help support arts organizations and their creative spaces. These sessions will provide tools, best practices, and feature guest speakers from the sector to inform and inspire creative spaces managers.

Many of the webinars from 2018 – 2020 will focus on accessibility as it relates to the Design for Public Spaces Standard and creative space capital projects.

Accessibility

As of December 2017, our webinars will be available with closed captioning and available as a transcript after the live session. If you require additional accommodations to participate, please contact erin@artsbuildontario.ca
