Northern Exposure is a gathering in Wells, BC for rural presenters and organizers of arts and culture with panels, workshops, round tables, networking opportunities and artist showcases.
Northern Exposure will draw together individuals, festivals, organizations and artists to share ideas and knowledge on arts presentation and event organization, and to foster growth and support networks in the north and central interior. The program will cover such topics as: Building Audiences, Marketing, Financial Sustainability, Cultural Tourism, Funding, Sponsorship and Community Partnerships.
Facilitated by Inga Petri, author of the seminal CAPACOA Study, “The Value of Presenting,” producers and organizers will be invited to give presentations outlining their challenges and successes in developing their projects. Learning from the expertise in the room, participants will be encouraged to share their personal experiences in roundtable discussions focusing on specific issues of interest.
There will be intensive workshops, including on Friday with an all day workshop on “Audience development: A roadmap to engaged audiences and vibrant communities” and then on Saturday and Sunday with workshops on Marketing, Cultural Tourism, Funding and Working with Sound.
