Balancing Programming and Space Rentals

25 April 2018

Are space rentals causing your organization’s arts programs to take a back seat? Balancing in-house programs with space rentals can be a challenge, especially when these areas present competing priorities for arts organizations. In this webinar, we will cover ways in which organizations can strategize for high-demand rentals and space availability for their own programs, such as rehearsals, performances, workshops, etc…

This free webinar is relevant to any creative space manager looking for more information on ways to balance space availability and resources when it comes to in house programs.

There will be time for questions and discussion following the presentation.
