  • County Arts Network Call: Leveraging Partnerships for Increased Impact, Efficiency, and Reach

    Includes a Live Web Event on 12/02/2019 at 3:00 PM (EST)

    From new public art initiatives and community events to capacity building programs and cooperative marketing, partnerships are frequently used at the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County (AHCMC) to achieve our mission, support the creative economy, and increase the impact, reach, and efficiency of our programs. In this webinar we will explore partnerships with local government agencies, media outlets, funders, real estate developers, and grantees that scaffold and expand AHCMC’s core work. These partnerships support individual artists and arts organizations, expand opportunities in the creative economy, and influence arts-inclusive policies across Montgomery County. Throughout the webinar we will explore different types of partnerships, goal setting and evaluation of partnerships, and tactics for leveraging advocacy in combination with partnerships to achieve organizational and programs goals. Following the presentation, an interactive discussion will be facilitated to give participants an opportunity to share their past experiences with partnerships, discuss perceived barriers to success, and pitch future partnership ideas.
