About Us

Arts Business Collaborative (ABC) is a 501(c)3 technical assistance and research organization committed to improving the quality of life of people of color through the arts and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math). Our programs focus on the underlying factors that affect quality of life for people of color: access to capital, access to networks, access to training, and entrepreneurship. 

Our vision is to 1) create systems and pathways for POC arts practitioners to remain economically viable, 2) facilitate POC-supporting arts and cultural institutions’ and arts practitioners’ ability to initiate and respond to creative destruction with excellence, and 3) cultivate the arts as the universal gateway to political action and social change for POC. 

ABC accomplishes this through our Grassroots Action Project (GAP) with subsidized technical assistance and capacity building services and fiscal sponsorship; and scholarly research through our Rising Tides Research Institute. 

While ABC’s budget has grown from less than $200k to over $10M in a matter of months (due to the growth of our sponsored projects and increased support of ABC through the Black Lives Matter movement), we are still a startup.
