the consultancy

the arts accelerator


BDAC supports leaders and administrators in progressive organizations on a mission to create real, sustained social impact. We develop systems, strategies, and solutions for arts & culture, education, and community-based institutions and individuals.  Our clients know where they want to go; we provide the how. To date, Betty’s Daughter Arts Collaborative has worked with more than sixty organizations. Let's co-create a radical future.


BDAC’s arts accelerator advances the work of artists, activists, and educators through real-world training in cultural strategy, community arts education, arts administration, public performance, and cultural activism. We have trained more than 500 practitioners through the arts accelerator and affiliate professional development offerings.
