Creatives Investing In Ourselves.


Together.



"Cooperation is...a thorough


conviction that nobody can get there


unless everybody gets there."

Virginia Burden Tower

As our membership grows, so do the benefits to our creatives: TheBLVD invests 60% of membership dues back into the community by providing access to legal aid, business services, guest speakers, grant opportunities, networking events and development programs delivered both in - person and online.

I'm an [actor, visual artist, writer, musician, etc], is TheBLVD for me?


Yes! TheBLVD was created to address the specific needs of creatives of all disciplines: Art and Photography, Culinary Arts, Dance, Design, Digital Media, Fashion, Film and TV, Music, Performing Arts, Publishing, and Theatre.

I'm not sure I understand....what are you selling?

Nothing, really. And you're not buying anything. You're buying INTO something. TheBlvd's operations are inspired by the idea of a "co-op." BLVD members have a general sense of shared responsibility with individual ownership. Each member has a say in how TheBLVD functions for the duration of their membership.

Ah, I see. So, what will I receive?

BLVD memberships alleviate the burden of creating by providing access to resources, guidance, and opportunities for professional development at a fraction of the cost of going it alone. Through the partnerships we cultivate and powered by the collective weight of the community, we are able to offer a variety of benefits to our members, including:


Legal Services | A BLVD membership covers initial consulting fees and basic services.

Business Services | Tax services, grant writing, communications, and more.

Coaching and Development Opportunities | Programs designed to arm you with the tools needed to succeed

Guest Artists and Events | Presented throughout the year and featuring some of the creative industries' brightest stars

Discounts and Perks | Delivered through perks at work, BLVD members receive preferential pricing on hundreds of products and services


As our membership grows, so does our buying power; 60% of member dues are returned to the community through the programs and services we provide.





TheBLVD leadership? Who are they?

TheBLVD is led by a savvy group of multidisciplinary creative professionals - content creators, arts administrators, teaching artists and consultants - with one common goal: helping creative professional invest in their own career success.


I like it. But, I'm not a creative. How can I support your community?

BLVD advocates are the "honorary" members of our community, working towards our members' success without taking advantage of the member resources and opportunities. Advocates can contribute to member fundraising campaigns, bid on member auctions, and purchase member products and services, with 100% of the proceeds going to the member.








Got it. Tell me more about "Mentorship and Development".

TheBLVD members invest in one another by delivering self-led courses (most at no cost to our members) focusing on the business of creating, grant funds to develop creative projects, and development programs that pair our members with high - performing mentors in their field. Additionally, we partner with organizations like consulting firms and production companies to provide professional services at preferential prices.
