Salons

Rung #1: Getting Onto the Digital Ladder

How can you use digital tools to support your organization?

Wet your toes in the pond before diving in. These affordably priced 90-minute discussions will examine a specific digital topic or theme, from organizational management, to promotions and marketing, to creative expression. Open your eyes to the possibilities of digital.

Salons will take place starting January 2019 at the BC Alliance for Arts + Culture in downtown Vancouver unless otherwise noted.

WHAT ARE SALONS?

Salons are presentation-style sessions with experts in the field who will discuss their topic and how it can be applied to the arts in particular. They are a way to get information about specific tools or concepts and how you can use them in your individual work or organization.

Each session is 90 minutes including the presentation and questions. Salons will cover a range of topics (see above for examples), and we will continue to add topics and speakers to the list as they are confirmed.

Anyone can attend! Choose the subjects that are most interesting to you.

 

FEES Per Session

BC Alliance Member Rate: $10
Non-Member Rate: $15
Sessions presented in partnership with the Vancouver Public Library (The Podcast Primer, April 9; Case Study of a Scrappy Mobile Exhibit, April 16; Digital Tools to Help You Create, April 30) are free for all participants.
