Bring CSA to your community!

Replication kits are now available to individual artists or arts groups, anywhere in the world. Our 45-page booklet will walk you step-by-step through the process of setting up a CSA program in your community, complete with logistical pointers, letter templates, partnership ideas, and lessons we’ve learned in running CSA in Minnesota.

The CSA replication kit can be downloaded as a PDF with a $45 donation to Springboard for the Arts. For a $100 donation, you can download the booklet and receive up to two hours of personalized phone or video consultation from one of our staff members as you work on the project. Toolkits are delivered electronically the same or next business day. Contact Andy Sturdevant ( to get a kit sent to you.

Community Supported Art programs have been, or are in the process of being set up by 40 different organizations in communities across America. Each program uses the same toolkit model, and then adapts it to the size, needs and tastes of their particular community to best connect local artists with local buyers. Join the movement!
