Best Practices Documents
We collect documents that have been helpful to Lincoln Arts Council and Lincoln’s arts community. Maybe your organization is developing a strategic plan, or perhaps you have an event and need to prepare a press release. We have articles to help you! We hope to make the sharing of best practices documents a collaborative effort and welcome any documents that you would like to share. Please send electronic copy to firstname.lastname@example.org
