Art-Train is for artists in communities of all sizes across the nation who are interested in building on their existing skills to collaborate in and with their communities through their local agencies, non-profits, and arts councils.
During a free 3-hour training, artists will deepen practices around creative problem solving, equitable community engagement, and creating arts-based strategies to address recovery, rebuilding and ongoing community and economic development. If you’ve been searching for a place to get started in community work, this is it!
Upcoming Summer Training for Artists:
