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. The webinars presented on the topic of accessibility are supported by the Government of Ontario.

Accessibility

As of December 2017, our webinars will be available with closed captioning. A transcript and a recording are available after the live session.

ArtsBuild Ontario is committed to access and inclusion. We use Adobe Connect to offer our webinars. If you anticipate needing any type of accommodation to participate in our webinars, please call 519-880-3670 ext. 101 or email erin@artsbuildontario.ca in advance of your participation.
