What are the hallmarks of successful partnerships and strong networks? Join us to hear from a panel of community collaborators who will share some new and interesting ways to improve collaborations and partnerships including the shared use of spaces and places. In this interactive forum, we will be exploring how successful partnerships and networks begin with identifying what each potential partner needs and has to give, finding synergies and pursuing next steps to create a collective vision, raise capital, complete the legal homework and get further into the nitty, gritty details. Speakers include Robi Smith and Kat Wahamaa, Artists in Residence in Maple Ridge, Minna Schendlinger, former Facility Manger for The Post at 750 cultural hub and 110 Arts Cooperative and Jessica Wadsworth, Executive Director CADA/West at Left of Main cultural hub. This workshop will end with a reception and more networking opportunities as part of the annual Cultural Networks Celebration event.
