SPARC Peer Session : Rural Performing Arts, Stronger Together.

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

11:30am – 1:00 PM

Location: Acadia B, Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel

Rural performing arts are facing complex challenges. Whether in areas such as audiences, volunteers, youth engagement or succession planning, there are no easy answers. The ability to address these challenges is present within our communities. Inside our collective knowledge resides innovations and solutions. Join SPARC (Supporting Performing Arts in Rural Communities) to learn about and contribute to strategies to connect rural creators, producers, presenters and animateurs. SPARC will discuss its successful Symposium as a model for adaptations across Canada and share its progress and approach in developing a network that supports and strengthens the performing arts in rural communities. Facilitator: Elisha Barlow (SPARC)
