WorkInCulture's Growing Creative Careers: Windsor & Region, developed and delivered in partnership with WindsorEssex Small Business & Entrepreneurship Centre and Arts Council Windsor & Region, offers professional development training that will benefit the businesses and careers of artists, creatives, and cultural workers living in the Windsor-Essex area. The program will be delivered 4 times to four different cohorts over the course of 2021 - 2023.

Each cohort will have a slightly different focus on topics and activities. Cohort 2 is aimed at multiple audiences with the same goal in mind – supporting, growing and sustaining healthy boards of directors in our local arts & culture organizations.

Arts & culture organization staff (all roles), existing and aspiring board members of arts & culture organizations, and those interested in forming arts & culture organizations that will be board-governed are invited to apply to this program. We will work closely together to address a wide range of topics with a focus on peer learning and interactive workshops. Participants will gain a variety of skills and experiences, empowering them to build and support their current board of directors, and/or how to become active, collaborative board members themselves.

The training will include a public session addressing the importance of having boards that reflect our community and will conclude with a public capstone presentation/recruitment event. Other core sessions and peer learning sessions will be accessed only by participants accepted into the intensive. 

For Cohort 2, training delivery will be offered virtually.
