The Union County Board of County Commissioners invites non-profit organizations to attend Building Community, a free professional development workshop on Tuesday, June 13 from 3:30pm to 5:30pm, presented on Zoom by Dr. Brea M. Heidelberg, Arts Management Consultant and Researcher; and Assistant Professor of Entertainment & Arts Management at Drexel University.
The workshop is free of charge. Pre-register to obtain the Zoom link here.
Dr. Brea Heidelberg is an arts management educator, consultant and researcher interested in the intersection of arts management and other fields of inquiry. Her current research involves the field of arts management, the training and development of arts managers, and management issues unique to small and mid-sized nonprofit arts organizations. Her consulting work focuses on human resources issues, particularly issues related to diversity, equity and inclusion.
“We are very proud to bring Dr. Heidelberg to Union County, to share her guidance on building relationships that help non-profit organizations thrive,” said Union County Commissioner Chairman Sergio Granados. “Our non-profits are an essential part of Union County. They weave us together in many different ways, united by the mission of creating a stronger community.”
Organizations that have received funding through Union County’s Local Arts (LAP), History, and HEART grant programs are especially encouraged to attend the workshop. Other non-profit organizations based in New Jersey are also welcome.
Participants will receive valuable guidance in creating meaningful and equitable relationships with stakeholders, with a focus on exploring demographics, forging new or deeper relationships with audiences, and learning how to build new relationships and increase engagement.
Building Community is coordinated and hosted by the Union County Office of Cultural & Heritage Affairs. The event is made possible by funds from the Union County Office of Cultural & Heritage Affairs, a partner of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
