The Georgia Arts Accelerator

Arts organizations from across the state have three FREE opportunities to strengthen their institutions.

1) Sustainability Impact Cohorts: A three-month cohort that brings arts organizations together with GCN consultants to learn how to strengthen their strategies, organization, and finances.

PLEASE NOTE: The upcoming Fall Sustainable Impact Cohort is now at capacity.

2) Nonprofit University (NU) Subscription: Give your entire organization two seats in every one of NU’s core trainings, offered year-round.

3) Facilities Management Cohort: Training for organizations with a facility to maintain, teaching you how to optimize operations through condition assessments, sustainable practices, and effective planning.

Who it’s for

Any arts organization in the state of Georgia, defined as a nonprofit that has an arts-based mission statement and where at least 50% of programming is arts-based.

Please note: Approval by the Georgia Council for the Arts (GCA) is required prior to participation. Allow two weeks for your request to be processed. Due to the overwhelming response in applications, only those who have been accepted will be notified.
