Best Practice Engaging Audiences
Engaging your community with your STEAM event involves far more than watching a talking head. Learn how to make the most of your resources and talent. Discover the best ways to actively engage your audience and appropriately target online programs that community audiences will want to participate in.

Partnering for Impact
Extend the reach of your online program beyond your own community by partnering and finding creative ways to promote what you are offering. Think big as you identify how to deliver maximum value to your audience. The pandemic lockdown has seen some incredible innovations, from facetime portraiture to global art challenges and couch choirs. Develop your ideas and learn from other successful programs, discover what works best in bringing big events online to life.
