This Timely Topic is a one-week deep dive into a current trend or an emerging issue for festivals and events. It can be taken in combination with the full course or on its own.

In this Timely Topic, you will gain strategies to show the economic impact of your hard work. Learn the ins and outs of documenting the economic impact of your event. The course covers the basics of economic impact analysis, the special challenges festivals and events face, tips and templates for effectively gathering the “right” information, and examples of economic impact projects from festivals large and small.
