Browsing The Bulletin Board

A few spaces are still available in the following upcoming workshops:
  • So You Need Money For Your Project: Crowdfunding for Artists and Arts Organizations on March 25 at 6:30pm in Toronto – You’ve got the ideas. You’ve got the passion. You’ve got the drive. What you’re missing is the almighty dollar.  Grant writing and fundraising events are no longer your only options when it comes to finding money to get your project off the ground. Nancy Kenny introduces you to the wonderful world of crowdfunding.
  • Canada's Anti-Spam Law: What Theatre Practitioners Need To Know on March 26 at 2:00pm in Toronto – Electronic marketing is one of the least expensive and most prolific ways for theatre practitioners to reach their audiences - to promote upcoming shows, provide ticket offers and solicit for volunteer and financial support.  Canada's new anti-spam law ("CASL"), which is expected to come into force this year, places considerable restrictions on the sending of commercial electronic messages.  This seminar will provide an overview of the requirements and penalties under CASL, and discuss examples of practical compliance methods.
  • Getting Started for Actors on March 27 at 2:00pm in Toronto – For actors beginning their professional careers, answering the most frequently asked questions about the business of acting including the realities of showbiz, pictures and resumes, Equity and ACTRA, agents and casting directors, auditioning, and maintaining and improving your acting skills.
  • Social Media Connecting with an Audience Online on March 28 in Blyth – This is your opportunity to learn the whys and hows of a successful web presence, and how to market yourself and your organization effectively.  The morning session presented by Paul Snepsts will explore the Why and How of a Successful Web Presence, including some practical tips for getting your website started or upgraded.  The afternoon session presented by Michael Wheeler, will explore Social Media and Online Engagement and how best to engage with your audience, which social media options are best for you, including the latest in live blogging and tweeting.
  • Playwriting: How to Self-Edit and Critique on April 5 to 7 in Toronto – Plays are not written in the first draft. Plays come to life in rewrites. But re-write how? What if we don't know how to move our work forward? What if we don't know how to critique our own work? What if we aren't sure how to process feedback from others? This workshop offers tools and techniques for playwrights who have a play “under construction.”
