Resiliency Workshops are a series of free professional development workshops aimed at providing local arts and cultural administrators access to expertise on specific topics relevant to our current local landscape. These workshops give organizations the opportunity to directly engage with local and national arts experts on topics such as COVID-19 and racial equity in the arts.
