Pre-Conference Workshop       Thursday, June 29 9:00 am-12 Noon

We are the Ones We have Been Looking For

An "Open Space" session where PRO SIG members and the producer/organizer curious can bring their pressing questions about the art and craft of producing festivals/series/community building, funding and marketing, volunteers, burnout, etc. using the collective wisdom and experience in the room, we will identify brilliant answers, frequent roadblocks, and best practices. And as always, good coffee and high quality snacks will be served to reward you for your participation.
