Survivor 101 for Community Arts Organizations

A Cultural Café and Think Tank for the Future

Community arts organizations come in all shapes and sizes. Some are small one-person operations. Others may be larger and have boards and advisory committees. Some have staff while others are volunteer run. Some have been around a long time. Others are just getting started… Wherever your organization is on this spectrum, some basic questions about survival and sustainability come up.

  • How do we stay relevant during changing times in our society?
  • Who is our audience, and what are some new ways to reach them?
  • How do we maximize our revenue streams in today’s competitive cultural marketplace?
  • In essence, how can we not only survive but thrive into the future?

The Regional Cultural Development Advisory Committee, and Metro Vancouver, would like to invite you to participate in a one-day cultural “world café” style session where these questions and others will stimulate discussion. This is a networking opportunity to share information on the state of Lower Mainland community arts organizations today, with a look toward developing sustainable models for tomorrow.

At the end of the session, your input will help foster a series of regional workshops which will explore solutions to these issues.
