Knowledge Series 3

After 16 years as Director of the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts, Amy Barrett-Lennard recently stepped down from the role leaving the organisation in great shape. PICA has been one of the most successful small to medium sized arts companies to build philanthropic support in the West. In this exit interview style webinar, Amy will provide an honest reflection on what it took to design, launch and steward a successful and truly holistic philanthropy program. In an arts company with limited resources what were the most effective strategies and what return on investment can be anticipated.


This seminar is ideal for

Fundraising professionals, Executives, Artistic Directors, Board members and CEOs to develop their fundraising knowledge within the Australian arts and cultural sector.


This Knowledge Series session will be delivered online via Zoom and participants will be sent a unique Zoom link the day prior to the event. The series will be recorded and available for purchase after this session.
