Ontario Presents is thrilled to be sharing with the wider cultural community an exciting new digital document titled “From Seed to Season: How to Grow as a New Young Audience Presenter” that aims to support new and emerging community-based young audience presenters in rural, remote and underserved communities.
The document is meant to be a useful toolkit or resource library that offers meaningful information, practical resources, and additional interactive links concerning the various benchmarks required to build, nurture and sustain a thriving performing arts series.
We encourage you to share this digital document throughout your various networks so it can find its way into the hands of community volunteers who may need support as they begin the presenting journey of connecting young audiences with professional performing artists.

As a companion to this digital document, Ontario Presents will be offering the following 3 continuing learning sessions (pre-registration will be required):
- Wednesday January 24th, 2024 - “A Time to Review” FREE Zoom webinar that will provide a general overview of “From Seed to Season” and how it can be used to help generate new community based presenters.
- Wednesday February 21st, 2024 - “A Time to Explore” FREE Zoom chat that explores specific content from “From Seed to Season” (such as building audiences and choosing shows) on a deeper level.
