Arts Services Initiative of Western New York

Promoting the Western New York arts and cultural sector

At ASI we provide the tools and resources you need for a successful career in the arts – Whether you are an arts administrator or manager or a working artist.  ASI works to enhance and contribute to the rich cultural sector of WNY.

We work 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 providing direct services and support to Erie and Niagara Counties, while complimenting partner services offered in Cattaraugus and Allegany Counties.  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 716-833-3004 or email us to see how we can help you or work together.
