Professional Development Workshops for the Not-for-Profit and Public Sector
Thursday, 17th May 2018 at 7:30 am

As the leading contemporary arts centre in Melbourne’s West, Footscray Community Arts Centre works closely with Indigenous, culturally and linguistically diverse and disability communities to develop their artistic potential as emerging leaders.

Due to this, it is uniquely placed to deliver professional development programs for the not-for-profit and public sector through its Generate workshop series.

FCAC’s Generate Program aims to:

  • build skills cross-sector in working effectively with communities
  • forge opportunities for partnerships across diverse industries.

According to a participant from the 2017 Working in First Nations Cultural Context workshop (which is focused on working with Indigenous communities): “This was the most incredible session. It has really got me questioning and reassessing how I do things.”
