ArtsBuild is proud to offer several community programs that fit with our mission to build a stronger community through the arts. Through these programs we aim to expand skills and experiences for creatives, entrepreneurs, and young administrators working in the arts and culture sector.

Tech Goes Home for the Arts

Tech Goes Home for the Arts is a 15-hour course designed in partnership with The Enterprise Center for individual artists of any discipline and small arts organizations to become prepared to monetize their online presence and to use digital and social media to connect to their students, audiences, and collaborators online. The course is offered four times a year.

Any artist or leader of a small arts organization with beginner level digital and online skills can register. Individuals must be over the age of 18.  A $50 copay covers 15 hours of online training, online portfolio development and access to professional arts resources. Participants will be provided a Chromebook laptop which is theirs to keep upon program graduation.  Low-cost internet options are also available as needed. 

For more information, contact Amy Lowdermilk.

Registration Information

The registration deadline was Friday, October 1, 2021 at 5:00 p.m.

Opportunity Fellows

The ArtsBuild Opportunity Fellows program places college juniors, seniors, or recent graduates in a 10-week, part-time (10 hours per week) paid work experience with a local arts organization. The program also includes professional development, networking, and community engagement experiences. Fellowships will last from mid-May through July 2022.

ArtsBuild is seeking innovators and forward thinkers as participants in the fellowship program who share in ArtsBuild’s mission to build a stronger community through the arts and possess strong communication skills, a willingness to learn, and a desire to work with others in a collaborative setting. Fellows will receive a $1,500 stipend from ArtsBuild for the duration of the program. Women, people with disabilities, and members of other under-represented groups are encouraged to apply.

The work experiences are provided in cooperation with our grant-funded arts organizations, our Community Arts Partners.  This is an in-person work opportunity for a college student or recent graduate. ArtsBuild is no longer providing virtual/remote internship opportunities. Individuals who have previously worked/interned for the Community Arts Partner participating in the ArtsBuild Opportunity Fellows program are not eligible to apply.

ArtsBuild opens the Opportunity Fellows application process on Friday, February 4, 2022.  Applications will be accepted until 3:00 p.m. on Friday, March 4, 2022.

The ArtsBuild Opportunity Fellows program is made possible by generous support from Unum and the Nancy Lackey Community Education Fund.

The application deadline is March 4, 2022.
