ASI: Promoting Local Arts & Culture in Western New York


Arts Services Initiative of Western New York (ASI) promotes the cultural sector’s vital role in economic development and the community through capacity building, collaboration, and advocacy in Erie, Niagara, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, and Allegany Counties.

Arts Services Initiative is proud of the work accomplished to date and is excited about the new services and programs launching soon.  In 5 years time we have helped the Western New York arts and cultural community (both non-profits and individual artists) with funding opportunities, programmatic opportunities, resources, advocacy, and the tools necessary to continue promoting what they do best: create art and share it with the community!

We thank our funding partners and sponsors:
