The creative process requires support and many arts organizations face considerable barriers to growth:

    • Audience development
    • Board development challenges
    • Lack of business contacts
    • Un-diversified funding
    • Limited access to funding new projects

The Arts & Business Council of Miami helps arts organizations and individual artists thrive through volunteer programs, educational outreach, leadership training and partnership building with seasoned business leaders.

Looking back to our inception 30 years ago, Miami had less than 100 arts groups and there was no channel for building business to arts partnerships and the cultural ecosystem was almost non-existent. For the past three decades, we have been cultivating and growing the global cultural community that we know today. Miami now has arts groups in the thousands.
