In this participatory workshop for nonprofits and artist-run organizations, we help you learn the ins and outs of audience and donor development. By examining the data provided by tools you already use, like mailing lists, social media, and surveys, we will help your organization discover more deeply connect to your current audience, how to attract new donors, and how to reach out to new communities. Led by Brett Ashley Crawford, Executive Director of the Arts Management and Technology Lab at Carnegie Mellon University.
- Attendees will gain tools and techniques for using data available to them (public and internal) in order to best engage existing audiences and donors
- Attendees will understand the best practices for diversifying audiences and donors for the long haul.
- Attendees will leave with models to improve their brand development and recognition amongst all community members and stakeholders
