In this time of crisis, ArtTable is reaching beyond geographic barriers to form a platform for connectivity for our community across professions. Each weekly session will bring together individuals within a particular profession in the art world for the exchange of ideas, to share resources and to network. Members are invited to participate in a 45 minute open discussion to focus on how women in the visual arts are handling issues relating to our field. Members and non-members welcome. We ask that you sign up for the event that matches your role and needs.

This session is for Development Professionals and will be facilitated by Sarah Milestone, Fundraising Advisor and Event Planner.

Gather with your development colleagues from across the country to talk about fundraising in today’s new climate. In this pilot session, we’ll explore the challenges and opportunities facing arts organizations and kick around some new ideas about gathering and building-community that just might help you move forward in a more meaningful and creative way.

We keep hearing that we are all in this together, and its true here too. Please come prepared with a question or two and be ready to share some of your experiences (or wish list items.) What’s on your mind?
