The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts

Warhol Initiative

CAPACITY BUILDING

The Warhol Initiative was an invitational program that concluded in 2012. It was designed to bolster the organizational capacity of small and mid-sized, artist-centered organizations across the country. Historically under-funded, these groups serve as vital breeding grounds for artistic experimentation, professional development and community engagement with art. The Initiative provided 64 participants with cash grants of approximately $125,000, professional consulting services, and triennial conferences that brought the groups’ leaders together for networking, workshops and training sessions with each other and non-profit management consultants.
