The Arts and Social Impact Accelerator Program (ASAP) cultivates partnerships with social service agencies and local artists in Northwest Arkansas. The partnerships will incubate ideas that creatively address social issues through collaboration, arts-based solutions, and socially-engaged experiences.
ASAP was directly inspired by the museum’s experience with community outreach during the COVID crisis. Read the COVID Response report.
