How we help

Mentoring Opportunities

Mentoring program maybe

Peer-to-Peer Mentorship

After the challenges of the pandemic, we know that many overstretched arts workers left the industry. Others were disinclined to move into or even progress in the field.

ACCA provides assistance to inspire, rebuild and renew professional capacity.

What we do

ACCA + the Arts

ACCA members each bring 10+ years of lived and work experience in the arts — and by “arts” we mean it in the broadest sense, including: performing arts, visual arts, fine arts, literary arts, media + digital arts, festivals, arts + crafts, heritage buildings, civic planning for the arts, inter-arts, deaf and disability arts, circus arts and more. Our members individually or collectively provide informed strategic and technical advice to increase the value of your work and Canada’s arts and culture sector.
