Webinar: Pro-tips from Our Peers on Going Digital (Aug 19, Culture Days)

“Planning online programs can seem limiting to those used to hosting in-person events, but doing so can actually present fresh and exciting possibilities! As a Culture Days organizer, creating digital events or programs is a great way to keep your network engaged, allows you to grow your audience, and helps remove barriers to access and participation. Absolutely, the process can seem overwhelming, but we’ve got a spectacular sector and community of friends who are kicking butt at taking things digital and are eager to share their creative ideas and strategies for adapting in-person arts-based activities with you.

In this webinar, Neil Adams shares more about taking the Regina-based Cathedral Village Arts Festival digital for the very first time in 2020, while Nadine Villasin Feldman discusses the Myseum of Toronto’s quick pivot to online programming and virtual events.

Join us Wednesday, August 19th from 2:30pm-3:30pm EDT “

Webinar: Breaking Attendance Barriers (Apr 21, Culture Days)

Breaking Attendance Barriers: Why People With Interest Do Not Visit

“Research shows that a sizeable portion of people who report interest in visiting museums and other cultural organizations do not actually walk in the door. What gives? The first step to motivating attendance is understanding why interested audiences do not attend. This webinar hosts guest speakers from market research and predictive technology firm IMPACTS Research & Development – they will identify the most frequently cited barriers, from difficulty planning to preferring to watch Stranger Things on the couch. lMPACTS will provide an overview of the top data-backed barriers leading potential visitors to choose another leisure activity, and arm webinar attendees with trend research to inform the creation of strategies to overcome each of the top barriers.

Join us for this 45-minute presentation, with a 15-minute Q&A session.

“As one of our 10-year anniversary initiatives, Culture Days is examining the arts and culture sector through the lens of Creativity, the Arts, and Well-being. The topic is the anchor of our year-round communications—across social media, we’ve been sharing research, ideas, and stories involving the many ways arts and culture are connected to the well-being of individuals and the vitality of our communities. Our special blog series by Leah Sandals deep dives into the theme by profiling organizations doing work in related fields.

Nearly every Culture Days event fits within the theme of creativity, the arts, and well-being. The work you do as artists and organizers have deep, meaningful impacts in the communities where you live and work, and Culture Days is the perfect opportunity to share how and why you do it!

Culture Days organizers hail from the full spectrum of cultural creators—from grassroots community volunteers and independent artists to major arts, culture, and heritage institutions. Best of all, there’s always room for more. Join us!

Culture Days offers a wide variety of resources, webinars, and research to inspire and assist organizers in all your planning, marketing, and promotion needs.”
