Williams Lake, BC - The Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Society is pleased to announce its partnership with ArtsBC (with funding support from Canadian Heritage/Patrimoine Canadien and the BC Arts Council) to bring the BC Arts Sustainability Semesters to the Central Cariboo Arts Centre located at 90 Fourth Avenue North, Williams Lake, BC on September 24th and 25th, 2011.
The BC Arts Sustainability Semester is a goal-oriented program designed to increase the capacity of BC’s non-profit arts and cultural organizations. The purpose is to help organizations make progress toward increasing their economic sustainability and viability.
The Semester includes a one and half day face-to-face learning event led by a team of experts (Lori Baxter, Kathleen Speakman, and Sandra Thomson) with specialized knowledge in the field of non-profit arts and culture. As well, local experts will be invited to participate as part of the content team. The content of each session will be customized based on key issues identified by participants in our region. Following the face-to-face opportunities, the content team will provide ongoing support through one-on-one coaching, an online forum and follow-up conference calls. Through this process, organizations will begin to address their challenges, and improve their planning to meet their new goals.
