Our Mission

Fractured Atlas empowers artists, arts organizations, and other cultural sector stakeholders by eliminating practical barriers to artistic expression, so as to foster a more agile and resilient cultural ecosystem.

What Does That Really Mean?

Good question. We're a national organization that supports folks at every level of the cultural ecosystem. Mostly that includes individual artists — performing, visual, literary, design, media, and everything in between — and arts organizations — from one-person outfits to the biggest of the big.

If any of that sounds like you, then Fractured Atlas can help you run your business more efficiently, with more, better resources at your fingertips. That means you've got more time, energy, and money to dedicate to making art. (And isn't that the point?)

Fractured Atlas is non-curatorial. That means we do not discriminate, nor do we judge your art. That's not our job. We're here to help with the "unsexy" stuff that helps make art happen.

We can also help institutional funders, policymakers, and others refine their 30,000 foot view of the field. New technology development, cultural asset mapping, research and data analysis, and advisory services inform your work and help you make smarter, more strategic decisions.

Our office may be in New York, but everything we do has a national reach. (We've even got members outside the US.) Whether you're in a small town, a big city, or the middle of nowhere, all of our services are just a click away.
