The Canadian Dance Assembly (CDA) is happy to offer two dynamic workshops in Toronto this month! On May 17, 2012 we will explore two key topics: Financial Management and Technological Innovation. These workshops are being offered as part of CDA’s I love dance / J’aime la danse National Campaign.
SESSION DESCRIPTIONS AND TIMES – May 17, 2012
Financial Management: Building a Strong Bottom Line
Looking to increase your financial literacy in the arts sector? Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to learn hands-on techniques from experienced and influential arts managers who have helped turn projects into financial success stories. The workshop will begin with general tips and terms to assist with understanding of finances, and will then explore examples of how to focus on private and earned revenue, donor cultivation, deficit reduction, recovery from financial collapse and balancing artistic vs. management choices.
Following that, by using real case studies, participants will get the chance to walk through financial statements and analyze the financial health of an organization. Have fun with numbers while brainstorming with colleagues and take away practical tools which you can implement in your daily work. Discover the art of finance!
Speakers: Kendra Fry (General Manager, Theatre Passe Murraille) and Heather Young (Principal, Young Associates)
Technological Innovation: On and Off the Stage
As technology moves ahead at light speed, how do we keep up!? This unique and innovative workshop explores the many possibilities of opening the technological realm in the arts – both on and off the stage. Beyond Facebook and Twitter, propel your project to the next level of innovation by integrating new and exciting marketing strategies in your work. Don’t fight technology, use it to your advantage and be creative in your administration.
Additionally, discover the endless possibilities of using technology in your craft as stages become research labs with installations, video projections and other dynamic interactive technologies. Participants will learn the ups and downs of technology, hear from experts in their field and will get a Papertronics Lunar module to make and take home.
Curious to find out more? Come check out this interactive workshop and walk away with dynamic tools to integrate in your practice, whether it be in the office or on the stage!
