TACA Perforum: Amplifier Workshop
Feb 26 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Suzanne Smith of Social Impact ArchitectsCollaboration as a Key
to Your Success in the 21st Century

Suzanne Smith, Social Impact Architects

Collaboration is the word of 2018. You cannot go to a meeting without this topic coming up. But, we often focus more on “coming together” rather than really “working together” toward results. This action-packed workshop will discuss different types of collaboration as well as best practices to make the most of your collaborative efforts. Whether you call it a collaboration, a coalition, or collective impact, this workshop will share tips and templates to ensure work collaborative efforts are productive, including how to best structure meetings, build trust using charters and ground rules, and measure your existing collaborative efforts. We will also discuss how to take your collaborative efforts to the next level through honest conversations on building trust, creating meaningful value for all partners, and managing conflict and power structures.

The TACA Perforum: Amplifier Workshops are a curated series of capacity-building arts workshops for arts leaders in North Texas. Participation in TACA’s Amplifier Workshops is free for current TACA Grant Recipients and North Texas Cultural Co-op members.
