Our Partners

Strong partnerships are essential to our mission of building and supporting a diverse community of cultural leaders who drive inspiring change for the future.

To create a network for change, we seek a wide range of leaders and organizations: national, regional and local funders; arts and cultural agencies; service organizations; and our growing community of change-makers. Our partners share our belief that career-long investment in arts and culture change-makers is critical for the health of our communities.

Join us and change the status quo

We are looking for partnerships with forward-thinking, collaborative, community responsive grantmakers. We have a lot to offer to strengthen existing leadership investment efforts and to support a deeper and more diverse community of practice in your city and across the country.
