Introducing The Arts and Non-Profit Marketing and Fundraising Mentorship Program

I’m excited to be starting a new 8 session class on Saturdays at Britannia High School for people in the Arts and Non-Profit sectors who may have great ideas for their organizations but feel they need help designing and putting their plans in action. It combines my regular Marketing and Corporate Sponsorship classes (which are also happening again at JO in September) but also features an incredible line-up of guest speakers including Richard Forzley, Director of Marketing for Vancouver Civic Theatres, Terry Hunter, Artistic Director of Vancouver Moving Theatre, Rita Albano, Executive Producer of CelticFest Vancouver and Stefania Buonocore, Special Events Coordinator for the GVRD, who will share their valuable insights and look at your project and offer their feedback. Go to my Learning Events blog to get more info.

This course is part of the Vancouver School Board’s brand new Liberal Arts Certificate program.
