Springboard for the Arts’ mission is to cultivate vibrant communities by connecting artists with the skills, information, and services they need to make a living and a life.

Our work is about creating communities and artists that have a reciprocal relationship, where artists are key contributors to community issues and are visible and valued for the impact they create.

We do this by creating simple, practical solutions and systems to support artists. Those programs support our goal to help create a local culture movement.

Building professional skills for artists

From the Work of Art: Business Skills for Artists toolkits and workshops, to career consultations, Springboard for the Arts is dedicated to artists of all disciplines making a living and a life. We make resources and create opportunities for artists to learn entrepreneurial, business, and strategic skills.

Thrive as an artist

Artists working in community

Artists and communities thrive when they work together. Our goal is always to create projects that are adaptable to the the needs of individual communities; and to catalyze relationships and mechanisms that bring artists and communities together, and have lasting impact.
