Outreach Beyond Your Organization Conference: April 28, 2016
On Thursday, April 28, 2016, PAONE hosted a conference with the Shaw Festival and Carousel Players that examined appropriate and respectful communication with new communities, and how to best approach outreach in communities that are not necessarily reflected within current audience, staff or board.

Community Arts and Arts Education Conference: Feb. 10, 2016
On February 10, 2016, PAONE hosted a Community Arts and Arts Education Conference where we asked: How do we define “community arts” and “arts education”? What are the differences? Where and how do they intersect? While the terms are often interchanged, each practice is characterized by unique approaches, methodologies, and goals. How can we examine these distinct practices, so that we can move forward authentically in our programming and strengthen the focus of our work?
PAONE was joined by guests Beth Helmers, Artistic Director at the Community Arts Guild an Offshoot of Jumblies Theatre, Marjorie Chan, Artistic Director of Cahoots Theatre Company, Angie Aranda, Manager of Strategic Partnerships & Operations, and Parul Pandya, Manager of Community Engagement & Communications from the Neighbourhood Arts Network.
