NONPROFIT + ARTIST DEVELOPMENT

ARt Connect

A two year professional development program for NWA arts and culture organizations, to deepen their impact and support organizational development

In 2020 and 2021, CACHE distributed a total of $750,000 through The Bridge Fund to thirty small and mid-sized Northwest Arkansas arts and culture nonprofits. Supported through a grant from the Walton Family Foundation, the funding provided support for organizations to rethink their audience needs, reimagine their future, and develop long-term strategies around operations, infrastructure and creative production in response to the ongoing and dramatic changes within the arts and culture sector due to COVID-19. Many of the grantee organizations serve the region’s most vulnerable communities, and it was critical to support them as they stabilized and planned for the future.
