How we communicate to our stakeholders and attract new people to our art is essential in engaging and developing audiences. This workshop will focus on communication plan development – a process of prioritizing what information is important to share through language and methods that are relevant to constituencies. The narrative thread that creates a story about you or your organization can connect development, marketing, educational, and creative goals. From one-to-one direct communication methods to print, online, and social media outlets – thoughtful and purposeful communication is essential in connecting your mission to the larger community.
