Arts Business Network

The Arts Business Network (ABN) is our cohort of POC freelance consultants. These consultants help us provide additional technical assistance in finance, fundraising and & development, marketing/social media  strategy & public relations,  human resources, web & app development, executive coaching & leadership development,  and DEI (diversity, equity, & inclusion) etc.

We encourage consultants with a variety of skills and experiences within the arts and stem to consult as part of the ABN. ABC’s network of consultants  provides a safe space to hone your skills and grow your client base. This mutually beneficial relationship allows ABC to provide technical assistance to a greater number of individuals and  organizations, while giving our capacity-builders income, partnerships, professional development, and experience.

Members of the ABN are experts in their field who want to transition into working for themselves as consultants. In addition, they adhere and follow the mission and vision of ABC, and equally want to support communities of color.
