Successful Events: Planning, Managing and Marketing

Organizing events requires skills to avoid disappointment and burnout - yours or your volunteers’. And … possible financial loss.

The event you’re planning may be a single concert, a poetry reading, a performance, a workshop or an art exhibition.  It may be a festival with several shows and activities.  Your show may also want to go on tour, whether to 2 or 10 locations.

​​These workshops are primarily geared towards members of the 100 Mile Arts Network - artists and venues - but they are also of special interest to community groups looking to host (fundraising) events.

Public events: a concert, a community picknick, a festival, an art exhibit, or ….
Private events like a large family reunion or a house concert.

The 100 Mile Arts Network is developing an inventory of artists (musicians, writers, dancers, visual artists, comedians, etc.) and venues for performances and exhibits.
The Network covers the rural regions of the Outaouais and seeks to build infrastructure to advance the cultural economy in English speaking communities.
