Learning Labs

Learning Labs are designed to meet the educational needs of arts, cultural, and creative administrators by providing practical tools about management, emerging issues, and leading research in the field. Attendees will leave these workshops with helpful information and tangible takeaways in areas like concept development & planning, board governance, income generation, financial management, audience development & marketing, staffing & structure, and facilities.

The Arts & Business Council of Chicago (A&BC) reserves the right to cancel or re-schedule any Lab for which registrants will receive a full refund.

No refunds are issued for “no shows.” Registration fees are not transferable. This allows A&BC to plan for event capacity and keep costs affordable.
