Join the Rural Arts Response Network

Are you seeking stronger relationships with your municipal officials? Trying to foster local participation in the arts? Simply curious about arts advocacy and where to begin?

Join WKRAC and your peers in arts organizations across the Kootenays as we learn together and collaboratively develop strategies to build community support for the arts.

This small group will meet biweekly from mid-June through September. Sessions will combine peer support and strategy development, with opportunities to learn from guests working in the fields of public policy and government relations, and peer organizations who have built successful relationships with their municipal partners. 

You can expect to come away with greater confidence in:

  • external communications and outreach
  • relationship-building and partnership management
  • developing a local narrative of arts impact
  • digital strategies to support project and campaign management.

If being part of this small, supportive group appeals to you, complete the intake form below by May 21, 2023.
