Growing Pains In The Arts

Getting good at fundraising, marketing and governance

Presented by

Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra & Arts Tasmania

About the program

The Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra together with Arts Tasmania are thrilled to present the 2022 Growing Pains in the Arts seminar series.  These are practical, hands-on workshops supporting the development of revenue generating skills for Tasmania’s small-to-medium creative sector and individual artists. Thanks to the support of Arts Tasmania – the workshops are free to attend.

This year, we are focusing on audience development and crafting a marketing plan, then building a cohort of loyal ‘sticky’ donors starting with a specific campaign.

 Board Members of all Tasmanian arts organisations should attend a lunchtime session on strong and accountable governance which are available in Launceston and Hobart.

Importantly, participants will have the opportunity to spend time with and learn from each other, and become part of a rich and diverse alumni group with the potential to change the outlook of the Tasmanian arts and cultural sector.  Please join us!

Who should attend?

The program is open to all organisations and individual artists working in performing and visual arts and the wider creative industries. It will suit those responsible for managing arts and cultural organisations, and early-to-mid career arts and creative industries managers. It is also open to post-graduate and final-year students studying creative industries disciplines.

Each module will address key principles of fundraising, marketing, communications and governance and provide time to discuss and workshop current issues.
