Workshops/Lectures

This page includes a listing of local (and some national) professional development workshops open to artists, educators, and organizations. Most of these notices are listed according to start date, although some workshops are spread over a period of time so it’s best to peruse the entire list. To submit a listing for RACC’s consideration, please email a short description of your workshop including dates, contact information and links, to mbauer@racc.org. We do not upload PDFs or other files with these notices, rather we post abbreviated listings with links to your site.

See information on the RACC 2015 Artist Professional Development Workshops starting in January. These workshops are listed below by dates or all together at the link above.
