Get on Board

Toronto Arts Foundation wants you to ‘Get on Board’ with the arts sector. Toronto Arts Foundation is introducing a new series of workshops and networking events called Get on Board Workshop & Speaker Series.


Get on Board Workshop & Speaker Series provides opportunities for volunteer arts board leaders, and those who wish to join arts boards, to enhance their knowledge of the sector and the art of good governance. Volunteer directors are accountable for one of the province’s largest and most profitable sectors. Equipping directors and arts leaders with knowledge about the sector and best practices in governance will result in increased organizational health, sustainability and growth of the arts sector.

Toronto Arts Foundation Creative Trust Research Fellow, Jini Stolk, will facilitate the workshops. Jini Stolk has led Creative Trust, Toronto Dance Theatre, Toronto Theatre Alliance, and Open Studio. She chairs the Ontario Nonprofit Network and is a Centre for Social Innovation board member; she writes the only arts management blog in Canada, ‘Creative News and Views’.

Upcoming Events:
