The purpose of the Regional Arts Connection program is simple but vitally important to strengthening our diverse cultural community: to provide a networking forum for area artists and nonprofit administrators, to assist them in achieving their goals, and to help further public awareness of the arts in Northeast Indiana.

2021 Meetings & Timeline

Upcoming Meetings

June 2, 2021 @ 4pm: Building an Effective Online Presence

Zoom Registration Required – Click Here

Speaker: Rachelle Reinking – Director of Communications, Arts United

Over the course of the last year, there’s been a major shift to get online for artists and organizations. It takes more than simply existing online–you’ve got to be present. This workshop will explore how to build that online presence effectively, as we discuss strategies to beat the ever-changing social media algorithm, tools to increase awareness that don’t bind your budget, and messaging techniques that speak your audience’s language.
