Art-Train Agency/Organization Training Registration

The Agency/Organization Training is for staff at government agencies, tribal councils, community non-profits and arts councils of all sizes. For a single fee (waived for Black, Indigenous and People of Color-led community based organizations), participants attend an initial synchronous virtual training session, and then receive one year of ongoing technical assistance through an online resource library and optional bi-weekly drop-in virtual group coaching and networking rooms with Art-Train staff, experts and an expanding network of peers (every other Thursday).

The training includes:

-Understanding federal funding access and approaches

-Impacts of working with local artists

-3 customizable program models to engage local artists

-Tools for equitable collaboration

-Peer networking

Training technology requirements

Trainings require stable internet connection as they take place virtually over zoom. Registrants will be invited to attend with cameras on throughout and ideally have a microphone. Out of respect for the experience of all participants, we request that participants commit to the full 3-hour training.

If your ability to attend is prohibited due to financial hardship, internet limitations, or you have any other questions, please email art-train@springboardforthearts.org. We are also looking at ways to offer language interpretation and hope to add this option soon.
