Artist Accelerator Program

A foundational early-stage creative business development program for fine artists, artisans, dancers, and writers.

What is the Artist Accelerator Program?

The Artist Accelerator Program is a foundational early-stage creative business development program for creatives. Established and emerging artists from around the region learn together in a supportive and collaborative environment, gaining career-building skills which boost confidence, skills, and economic proficiency. 

The Art Center’s mission is to inspire creativity and contribute to community well-being through equitable access to and engagement with the visual arts. The Artist Accelerator Program (AAP) advances this mission by supporting regional artists with career-building programming, artist residencies, and increased opportunities for artists to be visible and engage with the community.

We aim for an in-depth understanding of the diverse needs of local artists, building a cadre of high-quality instructors and venues for increased community building among artists and the communities in which they work.
