Event coordination is a process that has many moving pieces. This workshop breaks down this process and goes over the checklist you can use in planning future events. You will learn how to establish your event goals and objectives, develop an event master plan, identify venues and negotiate details, and other aspects of event planning.

About Professional Practice:
This workshop is part of Professional Practice, Lane Arts Council’s professional development program for artists and creatives. Participants continually learn together through an ongoing series of workshops. Workshops will feature presentations from regional and national experts, individual and group work, and assignments to be completed following the workshop.
This iteration of Professional Practice is in collaboration with Lane Arts Council’s Fiesta Cultural program. By presenting workshops in Spanish we hope to support the development of artists and cultural producers from within the Latino/a/x/e community, especially those not served by previous workshops presented in English.
This workshop is presented at no cost, but will offer an opportunity for pay-what-you-will contributions by attendees after each workshop.
Presented by Lane Arts Council, and sponsored by City of Eugene Cultural Services and Columbia Bank.
