National Accelerator for Cultural Innovation

Imagining design and arts-led social transformation for public good

National Accelerator for Cultural Innovation

The National Accelerator for Cultural Innovation prototypes, incubates and scales use-inspired practice, policy and public awareness that propels artists and designers as leaders for social transformation and public good.

The Accelerator lifts up work centered on its mission driven by students and faculty within ASU; serves as a testing ground for cultural and community policy innovation, tests scalable revenue-generating cultural knowledge enterprises, and provides a community for artists, designers, culture bearers, public and nonprofit sector leaders throughout the U.S. to dynamically test ideas and models that address our driving question:

What would happen if we radically reimagined arts, design and cultural models for public good?
