  • Boards & Governance
  • Finance
  • Long-term Planning
  • Funding & Government Relations
  • Fundraising
  • Marketing
  • Communication and Negotiations
  • Human Resources

Course work will include a mix of lectures, case studies, reading assignments, team projects, round tables, networking, and site visits. This course is ideal for arts workers ranging from part-time administrators to mid-level managers who wish to increase their management capacity and confidence.

The program is led by Camilla Holland, Executive Director of the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre, and will include senior guest lecturers from across Manitoba’s arts community.
