Tending Our Performing Arts Gardens Registration
Tending Our Performing Arts Gardens
One-day, capacity-building workshops and conversations for organizations and individuals in Minnesota's performing arts community.

Performing arts organizations — including the artists, administrators, board members, and volunteers — must be tended in order to thrive, build capacity, and take care of the holistic well-being of the people involved. Please join the Minnesota Theater Alliance and a dynamic group of presenters for useful workshops and conversations around the themes of establishing strong roots for capacity building and positive community impact. (Hence the catchy garden metaphor...!)

We'll dig into some of the essential elements that help our organizations, people, and community flourish. Each workshop will have a unique group of presenters, and will include a wide range of topics, such as marketing, fundraising, audience services, stage management, human resources, health, safety, wellness, and equity. Time will be available for conversations about topics you bring forward, or to connect with others in your areas of interest. Lunch is included.

These workshops will take place in five locations across Minnesota. Because the content will vary slightly in each location, you are welcome to attend as many as you would like. Consider exploring some new parts of Minnesota, and meeting the local performing arts movers and shakers in those areas!

(You, probably!) Anyone who is involved with the creation or administration of the performing arts — including theater, dance, opera, improv, and music. These workshops will be applicable to individual contributors and those who represent organizations/companies.
