The inaugural Pathways cohort!

Pathways is a year-long cohort program that works with selected Native American communities to develop and implement strategies that leverage existing cultural and creative assets and support the development and sustainability of arts and cultural spaces. In December 2022, Artspace welcomed 8 Native organizations into the program.
