Artists U is an artist-run platform for changing the working conditions of artists. Don’t starve, make art. We offer workshops, tools, and community building, all free and open-source. You can get our free ebook, Making Your Life as an Artist, and sign up for workshops at artistsu.org.

CultureWorks is a management commons for the arts, heritage, and creative community. We’re a platform of human capital, space, and resources – created to help artists not just survive, but thrive – and give them the tools they need to flourish. 
Do what you love. We got your back (office).

Leeway Foundation supports women and trans artists and cultural producers working in communities at the intersection of art, culture, and social change. Through our grant-making and other programs we promote artistic expression that amplifies the voices of those on the margins, promotes sustainable and healthy communities, and works in the service of movements for economic and social justice.

Small But Mighty Arts provides artists with the "spark" they need to continue or complete projects, maintain creative momentum, and put more work into the community through connecting & informing artists about career-enhancing opportunities, offering access to funding through micro-grants, and providing a range of advisory services.
Connect. Create. Thrive.
