“Digital Drawingboard was outstanding, and exactly what we at the Kennett Symphony needed. The program provided me with information and concrete steps to create an impactful online presence for our organization.”

“During a time when almost all of the arts and culture work being done was taking place online, being a part of Digital Drawingboard cohort in 2020 was really helpful to remind me that the basic tenets of effective storytelling, gathering and using data, and audience engagement remained the greatest tools to use in such an uncertain time.”
