About Betty’s Daughter Arts Collaborative

Founded and directed by artist-scholar-organizer-strategist Ebony Noelle Golden, Betty’s Daughter Arts Collaborative, LLC is a cultural arts consultancy and arts accelerator based in New York City.  Our Call to Action: Power creative action for social impact nation-wide.

Since 2009, BDAC has been supporting leaders and administrators in progressive organizations on a mission to create real, sustained social impact. Our clients know where they want to go; we provide the how. To date, Betty’s Daughter Arts Collaborative has worked with more than fifty organizations. Together, we are co-creating a radical future.

Through our consultancy, BDAC builds, implements, and evaluates systems, strategies, and solutions for artists and organizations working in arts and culture, social justice, community development, education, and cultural wellness.  BDAC bridges many worlds. Our holistic, results-oriented perspective makes us effective strategists, educators, coaches, and community organizers. We power progressive social change through community-designed, culturally-relevant engagement initiatives and creative projects. Because we think in decades, not years, we know how to turn any program or plan into a sustainable force for impact and transformation.  

Through our arts accelerator, BDAC amplifies the creative agency and capacity of artists, educators, activists, and others who want to activate arts praxis and creativity for social change.  Through the consultancy BDAC has offered a community-based fellowship for the last ten years, trained hundreds of people in arts-centered technologies, produced a number of independent performances, curated numerous events, and funded artists to create their own work.  We envision creativity and art as a strategy for personal growth, spiritual practice, and professional development.
