An afternoon Seminar at Perth Theatre

The challenges facing today’s arts centres are considerable. 

As venues are challenged by funding cuts and the draw of an ever widening variety of entertainment platforms to attract people’s discretionary spend, we look at how efficiency can help you to free up more time to be creative and drive additional revenue. During this free to attend session you’ll hear from expert speakers on these challenges and how arts organisations are working to address them with practical solutions. 

Places are strictly limited to 30 people so make sure you book early.
