Advocacy through storytelling | Online Workshop
11 June 2921, 3:00pm – 6:00pm CEST
One of ECA-EC's capacity building workshops developed for staff of cultural organisations, this workshop will explore how organisations can use storytelling as a powerful tool to support their advocacy work. All singers want to have their voices heard. However, it is just as important that singers are a strong voice for the sector, telling compelling stories of how the arts (choral singing in particular) holds the potential to transform the lives of individuals and communities, contributing to well-being, cohesive societies, and economic prosperity. Guiding the participants will be the wonderful Julie Ward.
