The workshop will be the OAC’s second annual Professional Development Day for leaders of culturally diverse arts organizations. The workshop will provide participants with an opportunity to learn more about fundraising in these challenging times, discuss OAC grant programs with staff and network with colleagues. Facilitator Kerri Laubenthal Mollard of Mollard Consulting will lead participants in a series of exercises designed to increase organizational and fundraising effectiveness.

The OAC’s Building Cultural Diversity program supports the development and viability of culturally diverse arts organizations whose mission, programs, and staff are representative of the Black/African American, Appalachian, Asian/Pacific Islander, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian, or other culturally specific perspectives.
