Arts Tune-Up is a free half-day mini-conference for artists and arts administrators, to network and establish new connections with one another, while learning about current trends in the field. Participants have the opportunity to engage in three roundtable sessions led by seasoned practitioners, addressing everything from skill-building to hot topics in the nonprofit arts sector. Topics include starting fundraising, branding for individual artists, digital storytelling and more. Arts Tune-Up is open to individual artists, seasoned and emerging nonprofit arts administrators, and supporters at all levels of experience.
