Review Our Clients

It starts with
a challenge.

A leadership change.

A new facility to plan.

A financial shortfall.

To get through it, you need more than just good advice. You need the most experienced specialists in the arts and culture world as your trusted partners – those who share your vision and embrace your mission as their own.

Arts Consulting Group (ACG) is the leading team of professional management consultants who are personally and passionately committed to the creative industries. We are recognized internationally for our expertise, hands-on approach, and extraordinary results.

ACG provides deep insight and active guidance for:

  • Interim Management
  • Executive Search
  • Revenue Enhancement
  • Facilities & Program Planning
  • Organizational Development
  • Donor Research & Planning

The Team

Arts and culture experiences made us who we are.

 

We did not start out as management consultants. We began as museum directors, play producers, orchestra fundraisers, and marketing specialists.

Through these experiences, we learned firsthand that arts and culture organizations have the power to transform communities because that same power shaped our lives. That means your success is personal to us. So much so, that you will not find a more motivated consulting partner.
