There is no better way to build bridges and cultivate community than through the shared experience of the arts. Join artists and creative professionals in this workshop to explore the “nuts and bolts” of producing cultural events from vision, logistics, partners, permitting, and funding. Together we will delve into various modes of participation in arts consumption, how to be intentional about place and layers of engagement, expand your network(s) of partners, de-mystify the City of Eugene’s permitting process for public spaces, and review a plethora of funding opportunities that are available for groups and individuals looking to produce cultural events and happenings for the community.
