Lunch & Learn

As part of its Arts Entrepreneurial Training Program, the Arts Council of Northeast Louisiana is offering Lunch & Learn, a series of lectures and presentations for artists and arts organizations so that they may better their business skills.

The first Lunch & Learn is September 6 from noon to 1 p.m. at the West Monroe Convention Center. Danielle Kelley Tolbird, community development coordinator for the Arts Council, will lead a session on public relations. She will cover how to write a press release, how to approach journalists, and how to use traditional and non-traditional marketing channels to promote the arts.

Lunch & Learn is free for Arts Council members. To join the Arts Council at the special artist rate ($31.80), click here. The fee for non-members is $10. Space is limited, so RSVP by emailing region8cdc@gmail.com. RSVP required to attend. Lunch & Learn is brown bag style, and guests are invited to bring a bagged lunch to the lectures.

About the speaker: Danielle Kelley Tolbird received her Master of Mass Communication with a concentration in strategic relations from Louisiana State University’s Manship School of Mass Communication. She successfully defended a thesis on non-profit fundraising, and is passionate about building mutually beneficial relationships with donors, journalists and patrons. Tolbird is a member of the Public Relations Society of America, and currently is the community development coordinator for the Arts Council of Northeast Louisiana. A lover of the arts, Tolbird works for artists and arts organizations professionally, but enjoys dancing, singing, painting and acting in her private life.
