This program supports emerging art leaders and entrepreneurs in their professional and personal development through a peer-to-peer learning model, specially tailored to the participants’ specific focus and goals. Heaven Gallery and Equity Arts believe in creating wealth-building pathways without incurring debt. Our program teaches both arts administration, entrepreneurship, and leadership skills. Through an equity lens, mentees will learn how to run a nonprofit art gallery using an innovative retail model.⁠
