The South Carolina Arts Commission is hosting a series of capacity building workshops for arts organization leaders.

SCAN is designed for arts professionals to engage in dynamic discussion with peers and experienced leaders in the field about the issues that affect arts organizations. The program invites arts professionals of any age and any demographic throughout the state to participate.

The initiative provides networking and resource sharing opportunities to enhance leadership capacity and develop innovative, effective, and sustainable arts management practices and opportunities. SCAN will convene virtually with a guest speaker to discuss industry issues. Attendance has no bearing on grant status or eligibility.

Arts Industry Director La Ruchala Murphy will host each workshop and is looking forward to the opportunity to learn more about what South Carolina’s incredible arts organizations are doing in and for their communities and how the SCAC can better support and work in partnership with them as they build capacity.

Upcoming workshops

SCAN meetings take place:

  • from 5-6 p.m.
  • on the second Thursday of each month
  • on Zoom
  • and registration is required.
  • Strategic planning, fundraising, and dealing with burnout can all work together in the fast-paced world of nonprofits.

    The goal of this talk is to give leaders and teams useful information and methods they can use to achieve long-term growth while keeping their own—and the organization’s—health.
