We look forward to welcoming you to the Fundamentals of Arts Fundraising | Esperance presented by Creative Partnerships Australia, Esperance Community Arts, Regional Arts WA and the Esperance Volunteer Centre. The workshop will be facilitated by Creative Partnerships Australia’s State Manager for WA, James Boyd.
We need to make you aware of an important change to the delivery of this workshop. Due to COVID related restrictions, no unessential regional travel is to be undertaken currently in WA, which means unfortunately James cannot make it to Esperance. We will therefore present The Fundamentals of Arts Fundraising online via Zoom over two 3 hour sessions, as follows:
Wednesday 10 February 9am to 12noon; and
Wednesday 17 February 9am to 12noon
