Professional Development

Creative Sonoma offers professional development opportunities to help our creative sector thrive. Offerings are targeted to individual artists, creative entrepreneurs, arts organization staff, and arts education professionals to help them do their work better. Our trainings and workshops are developed based on our community’s requests and needs, and on trends that we monitor across the creative ecosystem.

This page includes upcoming professional development workshops and conferences produced or presented by Creative Sonoma or our partners, including the Sonoma County Economic Development Board and the Sonoma County Arts Education Alliance
