Diversifying Revenue Streams: Creative Thinking on Income Panel 

Everyone needs income to make art and keep everything running at your arts organization. Individual donors, grants, ticket sales are all key parts to bringing in revenue, but are there other creative and profitable ways to expand your reaches to generate more money for your organization. 

In a panel discussion facilitated by artist and arts administrator Tana Hargest, you will hear from a variety of organizations about how they have increased revenue through ways that may also work for your organization.

Joining the panel will be:

Carolyn Payne, Executive Director, Soo Visual Arts Center
Lana Barkawi, Ph.D., Executive and Artistic Director, Mizna
Divya Maiya, President, Bollywood Dance Scene
Hannah K. Holman, Managing Director, Savage Umbrella

Come with questions and an open mind and walk away with new ideas for growing revenue!

Open Book has a free parking lot adjacent to the building, but it does have a tendency to fill up. There is plentiful metered parking around the building, with the least expensive being at the back of the building on 3rd Street. If ASL interpretation or other accommodation would help you enjoy this panel discussion please contact Bethany at bethany@mrac.org.

No refreshments will be offered as part of this session, but there is a coffee shop on the main floor and beverages are allowed in the auditorium.
