For Arts + Culture Organizations

New skills and strategies can keep your organization on the cutting edge. Join the more than 260 arts, culture and heritage organizations working with ABC to engage untapped networks of support for your staff, board and community. If you’re an arts manager or board member who could benefit from a fresh perspective or additional expertise, and you’re willing to invest time and energy to lead your organization through a project, with the help of an experienced technology professional, then Culture:SHIFT is for you. Arts and cultural organizations pay an administrative fee to the Arts and Business Council when a Culture:SHIFT volunteer is placed. The fee is:

  • $200 for organizations with operating budgets under $250,000

  • $300 for organizations with operating budgets $250,000 to $500,000

  • $500 for organizations with operating budgets $500,000 to $1 million

  • $1,250 for organizations with operating budgets over $5 million
