ABOUT THE PROJECT (2020 - 2023):

WorkInCulture is working closely with Windsor Essex Small Business Centre and Arts Council Windsor & Region, to develop and deliver a professional development program for artists and arts workers/arts administrators in the Windsor-Essex region. The training will include workshops, access to online resources and local experts, and facilitated peer mentoring circles. Participants who complete the program will come away with a detailed plan of action to move their careers/businesses/organizations forward. 

The program will be delivered 4 times to four different cohorts over the course of 2021 - 2023. Each cohort will have a different focus and application process.

GCC Windsor Cohort 1 Duration | April 26, 2021 - June 30, 2021 (Currently in Progress)

The first cohort is designed for arts professionals in the early or emerging stages of their career and covers training on articulating an arts or creative practice, CV writing, building online presence, financial management, grants and more.
