Arts Services Initiative (ASI) empowers the region's artists and arts organizations with connections to funding, learning opportunities, and community access to the arts. We are a resource hub for the Western New York arts and cultural sector.
ASI envisions a region where inclusive creative communities are valued and visible, and where artists and arts organizations have access to the resources needed to advance and thrive.
What We Do
We provide services and resources to nonprofit arts groups and individual artists to help them advance the business side of the art world and span their careers, whether just starting out or advanced.
Some programs include funding, professional development, financial services, arts access to the wider community, and advocacy efforts.
