Planning Calendar

The ability to help each other succeed comes from the sharing of information, and that includes auditions, shows and events.


Professional Contacts

We will assemble and provide lists of musicians, choreographers and other professionals you may be searching for to complete your team for an event.

What Is a Consortium

A consortium is a group made up of two or more organizations that work together to achieve a common objective. Entities that participate in a consortium pool resources but are otherwise only responsible for the obligations that are set out in the consortium's agreement. Every entity that is under the consortium, therefore, remains independent with regard to their normal business operations and has no say over another member's operations that are not related to the consortium.


Consortiums are often found in the non-profit sector, for example, among educational institutions. When well designed and executed, strategic collaborations can help expand the customer base, develop new sources of funding, and cut costs without compromising any individual organization’s mission or quality. They can also help arts organizations achieve goals that they cannot achieve on their own, such as funding the construction of a new performance space. Arts organizations rarely turn to one another to find ways to achieve their mutual goals, yet many collaborative opportunities exist for building audiences and cutting costs. 

Seventy percent of arts patrons attended the performances of more than one organization in the previous year, and 47% attended performances of three or more organizations. Levels of satisfaction actually increased among patrons who attended a greater variety of events.

Rise Up Arts brings together nonprofit arts organizations to share resources so we are fiscally responsible and provide the best possible benefit to our patrons.  RUAA is a collaborative of cultural groups working to advance the economic vitality of the nonprofit arts and culture community and promote the value of cultural resources to the local community.
