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.
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.
