Event Series Event Series: Kzoo Event Academy

You’re invited to attend a three-part series of event management workshops designed to support event activation in public spaces. Kalamazoo Experiential Learning Center is ready to share years of experience and festival design to help any event planner or manager through free interactive and hands on workshops that result in a “bring your questions to the workshop” format.

This free workshop series is designed to allow attendees to attend just one or any of the series. The series is designed to meet event planners where they are in their planning stages for an event. Whether it is a new event, a current event, or an event that needs a little tweaking, each series addresses a different aspect of the “event management journey.” The series is interactive, so please bring your questions and challenges.
