Houston Arts Alliance

The mission of the Capacity Building Initiative (CBI) is to impact, inform and invest in the administrative capacity of arts organizations toward artistic excellence.


  • To facilitate delivery of effective assistance through coordination, collaboration and networking;
  • To create a culture of learning by demystifying management tools, techniques and approaches so that they are understood, accepted and appropriately/effectively integrated into operations of service recipients; and
  • To ensure long-term viability of arts organizations as channels for diverse cultural expression.

CBI provides investments in organizational infrastructure through five (5) key service areas: General Services, Pre-Incubator, Resident Incubator, Accelerator and Sustainability programs.
