CANO also hosts quarterly networking meetings called CANOpeners. The goal of this program is to provide opportunities for individual artists to make alliances between the cultural, civic and business communities. CANOpeners are held in a different neighborhood each time and in conjunction with a different partner. This program is key to CANO’s overall mission to promote the cultural economy through deepening ties between sectors to build sustainability for individual artists and their endeavors. We also hope to increase the presence of creative artists and producers in policy making arenas.
