“We are thrilled to launch this cohort to strengthen a talented and diverse group of artists through the Arts Leadership Residency, part of the Entrepreneur in Residence program powered by Huntington. These artists, nonprofits and creative businesses are already impactful in their work, but the coaching with an equity lens from Cleveland Leadership Center will help take their work to the next level. The program was designed to help artists, especially artists of color, break down barriers to success through access to business resources, networking and dedicated time. ” – Jeremy Johnson, president and CEO of Assembly for the Arts.


Assembly is proud to partner with Cleveland Leadership Center. Assembly received support from the Entrepreneur In Residence Powered by Huntington and The George Gund Foundation for the development of this program. The George W. Codrington Charitable Foundation and the ArtsNEXT program of the Ohio Arts Council provided additional support to the Arts Leadership Residency.
