Business Volunteers for the Arts (BVA) helps both individual artists and arts organizations throughout Southwestern Pennsylvania. Our focus is in on helping small to medium sized arts organizations and professional artists.
BVA supports artists and arts and culture organizations with the critical support necessary to think strategically about their business. By matching seasoned business professionals with an artist or arts organization, BVA provides the creative community support to help individuals and organizations to work smarter, more effectively, and sustainably.
The Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council is looking for experienced business professionals with a passion for arts and culture and a desire to volunteer their time. Projects range from a single consulting session to projects that extend for several months. Most projects require 10-15 hours of time from a volunteer, although some projects may require more time. Volunteers will work directly with the client and GPAC staff to develop the scope, timing and goals of a project right up front to ensure that they reasonably meet what is expected of them during a project.
