Shunpike’s mission is to fuel innovation in the arts by building productive partnerships, cultivating leadership and providing direct services to arts groups of all kinds.
Shunpike provides assistance in areas like fundraising and strategic planning when many arts groups need that support more than ever before. We provide groups with back-office services that strengthen their day-to-day operations, while also offering strategic guidance that leads them toward their long-term goals.
Shunpike’s many partnerships create opportunities for arts groups to share and leverage community resources. Shunpike advocates to funders, government agencies, major institutions and the media about the needs of smaller arts groups in the region. Shunpike also serves as a facilitator between the business community, government agencies and the arts, supporting partnerships that address their overlapping needs.
