Inga Petri delivering "Value of Presenting" presentations and workshops in Atlantic Canada

January 31, 2014 | CAPACOA and the APA are partnering to bring the Value of Presenting study to Atlantic Canada! The Value of Presenting: A Study of Performing Arts Presentation in Canada is the culmination of two years of intensive action research, which involved two pan-Canadian surveys, and consultations of more than 1,000 stakeholders, including sessions at Contact East 2011 and 2012. The tour will consist of presentations for the public as well as professional development workshops. The talks and sessions will be led by the study's lead investigator, Inga Petri (Strategic Moves).

About Inga Petri, CMRP - President, Strategic Moves

With more than 20 years’ experience in diverse sectors – from the performing arts, museums and arts services organization to international trade promotion organizations, national membership associations and technology companies – clients benefit from an uncommon breadth of experience and expertise.

With a strong background in advertising and brand management, Inga has most recently focused on consulting in the arts and culture sector, where her work serves to widen appreciation and participation of the Canadian public in the arts.

As the lead investigator for The Value of Presenting: A Study of Performing Arts Presentation in Canada (commissioned by CAPACOA on behalf of the presenting field) she conducted extensive research into the value, benefits and impact of performing arts presentation in communities across Canada.
