So you think you can't afford arts programming...

You think you don't have the funds or time to develop arts programming at your site? You don't need a magic wand. Why not look at using volunteers in different ways to free up time for you to plan and develop programming. 

Start with How to Inspire Others and How to Find and Keep Leadership-Level Volunteers from The National Council on Aging's (NCOA) blog.

Center for the Study of Art and Community blog has a great article: What is Your Gift? why is Knowing Your Gift Important?

Make 2011 your year of finding out how to make things happen! (With or without your Magic Want!)
