Our Community of Practice

Sharing Best Practices: The consultants and coaches listed on this site came together as a Community of Practice in August 2009 to share best practices and provide affordable services to the Bay Area arts community. We were further inspired by the opportunity to offer affordable services that linked with the Creative Capacity Fund professional development grants.

Any Size Project: As individual consultants, or in teams, we help small and large arts organizations (non-profits or for profit), individual artists, cultural institutions, funders and philanthropists, government agencies and multi-million dollar institutions, with one-time projects or extended engagements. In each case, we provide creative solutions customized for each client’s needs.

C2Arts Vision

We envision a vibrant and healthy San Francisco Bay Area arts landscape that enlivens our communities.

C2Arts Mission

C2Arts Values
