Audiences Everywhere™ Workshop

Get Smarter, Grow Stronger and Gain Audiences.
The job of attracting and satisfying audiences isn’t just about marketing.  The imperatives of relevance and sustainability demand a whole-organization commitment to engaging audiences.

For organizations large and small and in every arts & cultural genre. This is an opportunity to engage your organization’s leadership (staff and/or volunteers) in an unforgettable audience-building dialogue that replaces obsolete, noise-producing paradigms with fresh strategies that resonate with your audience AND your mission.  You and your team will learn how to:

  • evolve from a “push” to a “pull” paradigm for engaging audiences,
  • create & empower the use of audience personas,
  • use social technologies to connect audiences more meaningfully with your organization’s unique mission,
  • make audience-building a priority for everyone in your organization,
  • save precious time, money & effort – yet still grow audiences now and over time.

Who should attend:  Large or small arts and cultural organizations – executive directors, artistic directors, curators, development personnel, marketing professionals, board members
