For the next session in our professional development series PLATFORM, we are turning our attention to audience development.

Toronto-based community animator Nadine Villasin Feldman will deliver a dynamic workshop with plenty of hands-on components.


We invite organizations and individual artists that are interested in deepening their understanding of audience development and engagement to join us! Registration is required. To reserve your spot register online.
