Our Creative Campus initiative is dedicated to developing and owning creative real estate projects. We seek to eliminate barriers for smaller organizations and individual artists to access safe, affordable, long-term, flexible space. Learn about our recent purchase of Western Ave Studios & Lofts!
For over 30 years, we have been dedicated to protecting the rights and creative works of artists and organizations through direct service, workshops, and legacy planning.
We believe that successful nonprofits require healthy, thriving boards of directors. To that end, the A&BC’s Business on Board program has been providing board service training for executives as well as board development consulting resources since 2002.
Through our fellowship programs, we help artists and creative entrepreneurs grow their artistic practices and businesses. Through direct services, coaching, workshops, and investment, we help these talented solopreneurs set and meet their unique goals.
Boston-area nonprofit organizations are in need of experienced business professionals to share their unique expertise and passion for important causes. Business skills, enthusiasm, and the desire to make a positive difference can have a huge impact on any organization. If you have always wanted to serve on the board of a nonprofit, now is your chance to learn what is required and to find the organization that’s right for you.
