Join us in celebrating the artistic spirit, breaking down barriers, and contributing to the vibrant cultural landscape of Colorado. Avante Garde is more than an organization; it's a movement dedicated to empowering artists and creating positive change through the arts.


Avante Garde's mission is to empower and uplift Colorado's arts community by providing local artists with financial support, mentorship, and resources.

We help Colorado's emerging artists achieve financial stability and creative fulfillment to overcome the pressing challenges of economic insecurity and mental health pressures.
