Arts Services Initiative of Western New York

Promoting the Western New York arts and cultural sector

ASI works in four main areas to help our local and regional artists and arts and cultural organizations

  • Professional Development
  • Opportunities
  • Representation
  • Equity

We are the local arts council, serving the 5 counties: Erie, Niagara, Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, and Allegany of Western New York.  Are you an artist and need assistance or advice?  Maybe you work at a non-profit arts and cultural organization and want to connect to other areas of our community?  Attend one of our workshops and learn more about the business-side of art.

Contact us by calling 716-362-8389 or email us to see how we can help you or work together.
