Throughout the year, our Connecting Places program offers free workshops, as well as other resources and targeted programs like mentorships. These are responsive to the interests of community presenters, and include topics such as marketing, volunteer management and strategic planning, among others. Our range of professional development resources aim to be responsive to the needs and interests of community presenters, adapting year to year in response to feedback from the presenters we work with.

Community presenters can book free one-on-one consultations with the Connecting Places Coordinator at any time to request advice in response to their ambitions and activities. If you’re new to presenting, or new to Connecting Places, this is a great place to start!
Email Nikki Ralston, Connecting Places Coordinator, at [email protected] to make a time to chat.
To ensure that Connecting Places remains relevant to community presenters in regional Victoria we conduct an annual survey, usually in the first half of the year.
We also provide opportunities to community presenters and their representatives, such as sitting on artistic or funding assessment panels, public speaking at in-person or online events, mentoring other halls, and connecting with other organisations and individuals that may be able to support you to achieve your goals.
To have your say and/or nominate yourself for other opportunities, sign up to our Community Presenter ENews to complete the survey when each year when it’s released.
Our Connecting Places team are available over the phone and via email to answer any questions you may have about community presenting or the Connecting Places Program, no strings attached. Reach out and we’ll do our best to help you!
