The arts mean business.
When arts and business partner, everyone profits.

What We Do

ABAE is a 501 c(3) non-profit that enriches our community through acting as a catalyst for dynamic arts and business partnerships.


We believe the goals of business and the arts are congruent. Business is essential to a viable arts community and arts are good for business. In communities across the nation, the arts and business sectors are successfully collaborating to contribute to the quality of life in their region; drive economic development; stimulate creativity and innovation; and strengthen the ability of business to recruit and retain a diverse group of individuals who will bring exceptional skills to the community. We believe it is time to champion these efforts in Eugene.
