CAPACOA Will Host a Two-Day Workshop for Arts Service Organizations

April 8, 2014 - CAPACOA will be hosting a retreat on association business model innovation for arts service organizations, on May 5th and 6th in Toronto.

Thanks to support from the Canada Council for the Arts and Canadian Heritage, CAPACOA has engaged Jeff de Cagna, from Principled Innovation, to lead this workshop at the Lakeside Terrace at Harbourfront Centre in Toronto. While the workshop is primarily intended for participants of CAPACOA's national network meeting, CAPACOA would like to extend the invitation to other arts service organizations in the performing arts sector and beyond.

Workshop Description

In a world experiencing profound transformation, arts service organizations must act to build adaptive and resilient business models by developing a robust approach for co-creating thick value with current and future stakeholders. The concept of "collaborative advantage" offers an integrative approach for identifying platforms, mapping opportunity spaces and tapping into stakeholder’s networks to drive meaningful value creation through innovation. This workshop will engage participants and their colleagues from across Canada in an interactive "deep dive" exploration of collaborative advantage that we will apply to begin the process of building a stronger business model for the network of service organizations in the performing arts and beyond. During the workshop, we will consider the following crucial and complex questions:

  • What are our deep-seeded beliefs about what an association is supposed to be and what it is supposed to do?
  • What will it take for arts service organizations to thrive over the next decade and beyond?
  • What will your association’s stakeholders need to thrive over the next decade and beyond?
  • Why should your current and future stakeholders want a relationship with your association over the next decade and beyond?

At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will define a set of shared specific outcomes that need to be pursued over the rest of 2014 to accelerate the rate of progress in building their collaborative advantage.

Location: Lakeside Terrace at Harbourfront Centre, Toronto.

Registration fee: $250 per person, includes lunch
