pARTnership Movement Toolkit: How to Partner with Chambers of Commerce Part 2- Connecting Community Impact to Arts and Chambers Partnerships
Just as local arts agencies act as voices and conveners for their arts and culture communities, so do local chambers of commerce for their business communities. How can these two types of agencies work together to solve community, social, and economic issues?
In Part 2 of the collection, participants will take the foundational knowledge gained and basic activations from the first series and expand beyond their role as arts leaders into the role of community and economic development partner. Participants will learn about how to identify their own work and assets within their full community and creative ecosystem and begin to leverage new connections and relationships inside the chamber to address social impact, equity, and community issues. Participants will gain fluency in the Arts & Economic Prosperity studies, as well as learn how to use other creative economy research to make their case to their chamber and economic development counterparts. Participants are encouraged to use the toolkit as complimentary learning and participate in a live peer discussion once completing the 3-part on-demand webinar series.
