Conventional marketing practices that focus on picking the “low-hanging fruit” are inadequate for today’s fiercely competitive and ultra-connected environment.  This “mind-opening, rut-clearing & possibility-renewing” workshop introduces an updated and cohesive framework to attract, sustain, cultivate and diversify audiences –  a strategy that’s immediately actionable for arts and cultural organizations of every size and genre.

Key Takeaways include:

  • The critical difference between “pushing” and “pulling” for an audience
  • What your audience demands beyond “quality” and “value”
  • The 4 types of audiences and how to identify and engage them – in-person & on-line
  • (At least) 3 bold & creative ways to get your audiences to return
  • How to serve your community in ways that really matter for growing your audience
