WHAT DO WE DO?
We promote unity, innovation, and progress in the arts to build strong and vibrant communities.
WE SUPPORT ARTISTS WITH THE RESOURCES THEY NEED TO THRIVE IN THEIR CAREERS.
We believe that artists are the core of a strong arts ecosystem.
Since 2016, we have awarded $52,000 in grants to artists and will award another $50,000+ in 2019 alone. We offer ongoing education and professional development opportunities. We also facilitate access to legal professionals for essential services.
WE AMPLIFY THE WORK OF OTHERS BY PROVIDING AN ACCESSIBLE PUBLIC PLATFORM.
We believe that communities thrive when arts and culture are seen as essential, not luxuries.
We leverage our resources and connections to give innovative artists of all disciplines a larger platform. All of our programs are designed to give artists a stronger voice.
WE UNITE THE ARTS SECTOR TO ADVOCATE FOR LONG-TERM CHANGE.
We believe systemic change happens from working at both a micro and macro level.
We work to unite the arts sector and solve larger systemic problems. We connect artists, organizations, and industry leaders to identify common goals and obstacles. We find solutions, make plans, keep everyone accountable and share the progress.
