What is the Artist Accelerator Program?
A foundations business program 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.

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.
