WAW: Nonprofit VS Commercial Spaces

  • Omaha Creative Institute 1419 South 13th Street, Suite 103 Omaha, NE, 68108 United States (map)

What's the difference between a commercial gallery and a nonprofit space? What can you expect when working with one versus the other and how do you decide which model is right for you and your work? 

Join founder and director of Darger HQ, Launa Bacon to learn more about the pros and cons and give and take involved in exhibiting, performing, doing readings, etc. at both nonprofit and commercial spaces. 

WAW is a year-round series of professional development opportunities that focuses on learning practical skills, designed to help Omaha area artists cultivate or refresh the professional aspects of their creative practice. Each month is devoted to one topic. Expert community partners will lead a main learning session, followed by a hands-on, collaborative workshop later in the month. 

Participants will create robust networks of peers and professional contacts alongside these opportunities to self-evaluate and learn from others’ experiences.

Every session/workshop is free and open to the public. OCI cannot offer childcare services, but parents you are more than welcome to bring your children if childcare is not available to you. 

The WAW Series is sponsored in part by the Iowa West Foundation.
