Announcing Art-Train! Art-Train is a new national training and technical assistance to bring together artists and creative workers with municipalities, agencies, and organizations to create culture-based collaborations. With a track for artists and a track for agencies, Art-Train helps you use American Rescue Plan and American Jobs Plan funding to support locally-rooted, culture-based collaborations for a creative and equitable recovery. Training sessions start May 11, learn more and register today!

Significant relief and recovery dollars are now available in every state and locality across the country. The American Rescue Plan resources are unusually flexible, and funding from the proposed American Jobs Plan is expected to be significant as well.   

These public funds can be used to support arts and culture-based, cross-sector community partnerships to rebuild civic and economic vitality, and reimagine more equitable systems. Plan now to access these funds in your community: Read the Memo.

Art-Train is here to help you access resources and develop strategies that will help you reach and engage more people, increase community relevance and connection and find creative ways to be more effective. Artists bring not only their ability to make, to engage across sectors and people, but also to use critical processes to reconnect, reimagine and rebuild in their own places.

Trainings for Agencies/Organizations start on May 11, 2021 and for Individual Artists on May 18, 2021 and repeat every two weeks (same content).
