We know it’s difficult to set aside the time and funds to strategize around your project’s success, so we’ve built affordable options for different sizes and shapes of arts groups. Shunpike’s team of expert volunteer advisors leads our Arts Business Clinic programming. They can strengthen your organization or project through their expertise in fundraising, finance, communications, board development, strategic planning and space-related issues.
Shunpike offers 30-minute, one-on-one consultation appointments with arts business experts for just $30. Whether you need help figuring out if your arts business should be nonprofit or for-profit, how to launch a fundraising campaign or you’re at a crossroads about how to proceed with your project, we can help.
Seattle is teeming with experienced artists, arts professionals and advocates that have worked hard to sharpen every tool in their collection – from grassroots marketing and fundraising to steering the ship of organizations and cultivating stellar boards. Learning straight from the source is what these events are all about. Presentations followed by facilitated peer learning sessions create a space where skills are shared, ideas exchanged and questions answered.
Shunpike members have access to an online library of tools and templates that hone in on the essentials of running a successful arts group or project. Expand your skills on your own time, and share what you learn with your collaborators.
