Over the next few weeks, CHRC is hosting open-registration workshops by time zone. The workshops are 4-hours in length (includes a 30-minute lunch break and other shorter breaks).
The workshops are intended for non-profit organizations and cultural workers in any of the cultural disciplines or industries: managers, administrators, technical personnel, Board members, volunteers and, obviously, artists.
Sign up via Eventbrite by clicking on the links below. Organizations and individuals may reserve up to 8 “spots” in the workshop. PARTICIPATION IS FREE however, if you reserve, we kindly request that you mark your calendar and attend. Workshops are limited to a total of 90 participants. The CHRC-led workshop calendar appears below.
Organizations that can bring together anywhere between 8 and 90 participants are invited to request to host a workshop.
Renewed thanks to Canadian Heritage for the funding support!
CHRC RWA Workshops in English and French (chronological order)
Canadian Heritage and CHRC are offering Respectful Workplaces in the Arts workshops to encourage better workplace practices and behaviours. The workshops cover information on Provincial and Territorial legislation, definitions of harassment and bullying as well as case-studies to navigate the complexities of problematic situations. These workshops are not legal nor therapy clinics, they are conversations facilitated by experienced cultural sector leaders. Resources are discussed to help individuals and organizations towards contributing to better work environments and/or to develop their own policies/codes of conduct.
Creative City Network of Canada (CCNC), CHRC and Les Arts et la Ville are embarking on a two-phase project that aims to discover inspiring examples of cultural innovation throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Cultural Resilience: Using Innovation to Stabilize in Times of Crisis will call attention to the organizations and artists who created, distributed, and monetized cultural content despite the challenges of public safety measures. These approaches will become the foundation for a new tool aimed at building resilience within the sector for years to come. Through Hill Strategies, the CCNC is gathering stories of resilience and creative responses to the pandemic. We encourage you to bring forward your stories of success and be part of a bright future for the Canadian cultural sector for years to come

“We are very pleased to announce the launch of the Canadian Artists and Content Creators Economic Survey. As of May 10, 2021, the survey is live and open for a period of 6 weeks.
