Join Research Consultant Rob Wong and Research Analyst Marisha Holmberg on Wednesday, May 8, 2013 from 5:00–8:00pm to discuss:
- Why your organization needs to collect data
- What data to collect
- How to collect it without spending a fortune, and
- How your data collection might fit into local and national arts initiatives
This workshop will be held in the Sir Robert Barrie Room located on the second floor of City Hall, 70 Collier Street. For more information or to register for this workshop please email The Department of Culture at email@example.com or call (705) 739-4299.
