Amplifier Workshops

The Amplifier Workshops are a series of professional development workshops aimed at providing local arts and cultural administrators access to expertise on specific topics that may otherwise be difficult to access on an individual basis. These workshops give organizations the opportunity to directly engage with local and national arts experts on topics such as marketing, audience development, and fundraising.
