work with arts approach
connecting arts and culture organizations to community
We support arts and culture organizations in the planning process as they strategize to build cross-sector partnerships, make work from community stories, engage nonprofessional arts participants, and create programs that engage their audiences and visitors. Using tested methods of engaging new partners and a strengths based approach to activating your current connections, we can help you set goals and start out on the right foot.
