About the project (2020 – 2022) 
Developing more sophisticated marketing skills to build awareness, engage audiences, and drive revenue generation continue to be a high priority for arts and heritage organizations.  

Through generous support from Canadian Heritage, WorkInCulture working closely with a curriculum consultant and marketing specialist, will develop a marketing incubator program for arts & heritage organizations in Toronto, Kingston, and Ottawa.

A total of 30 participants will be accepted into the program to receive the training and to create a marketing strategy to address a challenge or opportunity of their choosing.  Finalized online content including any best practices, case studies, videos, processes and practical tools, and training content, will be shared with the arts and culture sector broadly. 

We look forward to sharing more information about this project, when and how to apply, and the outcomes. To keep updated on the project progress and related training activities, please sign up to receive more information.
