WAARP Series:
 Workshops for Aboriginal Artists to Reach their Potential

This 8-module workshop series has evolved from years of experiences coaching, listening to, and learning from a range of talented Aboriginal artists and tourism students. Core writing and digital literacy skills are developed as participants learn the basics of creating - and maintaining- their own sales and marketing package.  It's interactive, fun and short and sweet... because I know most artists and tourism business operators would rather be carving or leading canoe tours than sitting in a classroom!   See overview, here.

 

We're honoured to have worked with Aboriginal organizations like the Native Education Centre, Kla-how-eya and Helping Spirit Lodge Society. See our clients success page to find others who've supported our socially responsible business.
