Tailored Trainings & Workshops

If you’re looking to develop a new service, evaluate an existing program, or start a new program, Americans for the Arts staff can create a variety of customizable trainings and workshops to assist you. These sessions come in a variety of formats and are flexible enough to meet your needs.

Training and workshops can be targeted to arts, government, business, education, or combined community groups at the local, state, and national level. Programs use research, case studies, expert speakers, and interactive facilitation to attract attention and energize participation.

Specialized Training with the National Arts Marketing Project

National Arts Marketing Project (NAMP) workshops are results-driven, individualized marketing trainings brought right to your community. Think of NAMP marketing workshops as the opportunity to work with us in designing a comprehensive training program crafted to fit the needs of your organization: whether you’re undertaking a rebranding effort, need a social media deep dive, or seeking audience engagement tactics (just to name a few).

Specialized Training with Animating Democracy Program

Our Animating Democracy Program offers specific workshops as well as consultation services related to designing, implementing, funding, and assessing arts civic engagement and social change work. We also conduct research that informs field leaders in their efforts to connect arts and culture to community, civic, and social change. 

Customizable Research Reports

Many local arts agencies don’t know where to start when thinking about research and quantifying their vibrant arts community with numbers. We can deliver a comprehensive report on the impact of your work in your community to help support and continue funding your valuable programs.
