  • Budgeting
  • Visioning
  • Project design

Next, Ed will dive into his specialty, Strategic Planning for Dance Projects and Organizations. This hands on session will cover creating strategic plans that are: 1) Useful, as in, don’t just write and stick in a drawer but use to grow your work; 2) Understandable to artists, stakeholders, and communities; and 3) A creative experience to write, rather than a chore. This session will cover budgeting, visioning, and project design.

Open to anyone who attended Anatomy of a Non-Profit AND dance artists, educators, and administrators, who make decisions at an arts organization or project–big or small.
