Welcome to the Hollyhock Presenter Portal!

We are delighted you will be joining Hollyhock in 2024 as a presenter for the 41st season to bring your depth of knowledge, experience, and skills to our community. Whether this is your first year as a presenter, or your 40th, we are here to support you and your program.

This portal is a new resource for Hollyhock presenters and we will be working on building it out throughout the season.

As a registered charity Hollyhock works to have a big impact but we do have a small staff. Without a big marketing team we rely on collaboration with presenters like you and our collective networks to help reach the audience who will best connect with your offering.

Every program and presenter Hollyhock hosts has an important story to tell. We look forward to working together with you to ensure a successful program in 2024 and sharing your stories in meaningful and creative ways.
