Are you working in community? Are you staff at a government agency or community-focused organization, or an artist - with desires to make change? Are you looking for new ways to address your community’s most pressing issues? Join us at Art-Train!

Art-Train is an ongoing, national training and technical assistance program designed to help you develop strategies to reach and engage more people, increase community relevance and connection, and find innovative ways to be more effective - and create authentic, equitable and lasting change.

With trainings for individual artists and staff of agencies/organizations held year-round, Art-Train provides space to tackle critical issues such as social cohesion, civic engagement, public planning, equity, workforce development, public health, housing, and economic growth by supporting and working with local artists.
