What is the Artist Accelerator Program?

A foundations business program custom designed for fine artists, artisans, musicians and writers. Established and emerging artists from around the region work together in a supportive and collaborative environment, gaining career-building skills that boost confidence, skills, and economic proficiency. 

The Art Center’s mission is to foster creativity and engagement with the arts to inspire personal growth and community well-being. The Artist Accelerator Program (AAP) is advancing this mission through support of regional artists with career-building programming, mentorship, and increased opportunities for artists to be visible in the community. To accomplish this, we aim for in-depth understanding of the diverse needs of local artists, building a cadre of high-quality instructors, and the formation of venues for increased community building among artists and the communities in which they work.
