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, manager, or a working artist.  ASI enhances and contributes to the rich cultural sector of WNY to be a thriving industry.

We focus in four main areas to support our area artists and arts and cultural organizations:

  • Professional Development
  • Resources
  • Representation and Advocacy
  • Access, Equity, and Inclusion

We are the local arts council providing direct services and support to Erie and Niagara counties, and complementing services offered in Allegany, Cattaraugus, and Chautauqua 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.

We are WNY Arts and we are reopening together!
