Shunpike is a nonprofit arts organization whose mission is to fuel innovation in the arts by building productive partnerships, cultivating leadership and providing direct services to arts groups of all kinds. We provide arts 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 serves more than 300 arts groups throughout Washington – representing more than 5,000 artists and more than 100,000 public participants annually. Our annual operating budget is approximately $500,000, and we manage over $1,500,000 for our fiscally sponsored organizations.
