RACC 2017 Workshops

RACC is pleased to be expanding the many ways we support artists, creatives, makers, and arts organizations in our community. Throughout calendar year 2017 we will be repeating some of our most popular professional development workshops, and adding several new topics as well. Based on community feedback, some of next year’s offerings will focus on serving underrepresented communities – working with new presenters and promotional partners to deliver learning experiences that are designed to help every artist succeed.

Some of the tried and true topics you can expect in 2017 include financial management and bookkeeping courses; grant writing; and how to navigate the ever-changing world of social media. In the year ahead we will also explore the ins and outs of event production; teaching artists how to build their portfolios; and the world of hazardous materials. RACC workshops are offered throughout every quadrant of the city at affordable prices – every workshop is $35 or less!

The RACC professional development workshops below are open for registration.
