Tualatin Valley Creates offer opportunities for artists and arts organizations to grow their skills and knowledge through a professional development workshop series.
Topics planned for the 2018 series include: Leadership Development, Grant Writing, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, Building Public Will for the Arts, and more. See our upcoming offerings below.
Volunteer Leadership: Survival 101
As a volunteer helping run an arts organization, life can be wonderful… and crazy-making.
For example: How do you seize opportunity and gain momentum, while maintaining focus and setting boundaries? How do you maintain enthusiasm and energy, while also being realistic about your limits? How do you recruit others to help you, without creating more work for yourself?
Thomas Bruner of Bruner Strategies will help us develop strategies for these and other issues in a fun, positive, engaging, and interactive workshop. You owe it you yourself – and your organization – to attend.
Are You Grants Ready?
Before you sit down and attempt to write your next (or first) grant, make sure you are prepared.
Learn tips from the pros about identifying grant-worthy projects, deciding which grants to pursue, and ensuring you and your organization are ready to successfully write and implement a grant.
Workshop facilitators Darcie Spar, Heather Ellis, and Maggie Bonjean collectively have almost 40 years of fundraising and grant writing experience. All three currently lend their talents to the Oregon Food Bank where they work in development.
