Our Story

born from a need in our industry.

Our founder, Lynette Shy, has worked in the arts & entertainment industry for over 20 years, leading organizations of various sizes in operations,  research, strategy, & implementation.

Through her experiences, she saw a repeating trend. There are not enough resources that understand the unique challenges of the arts industry. Especially, the small to mid-sized arts organizations.

It became her passion to fill this gap and offer much-needed & affordable support to these valuable organizations.

Through that, Confluence Arts Solutions was born.  


Do you have a question about a campaign and you’d like to run it by someone? Maybe you’re wondering when you should start running ads, what type will work best, should you discount, should you not, etc.

We have many different ongoing support services to help you. Have just a few questions, consider booking a single 30-minute coaching session for as little as $125.  Need more help or want ongoing support? Consider a retainer – that makes us available for any questions that arise, allows regular strategy and content planning meetings and can even include full plans or team management.  From as low as $600.

Sometimes you need a little help. From day-to-day operations to special projects to providing temps in between hires, with us to guide your projects, you’ll have access to an expert in your corner, from start to finish. And because we offer these services for several arts organizations across the country, it’s typically cheaper than hiring individually.

We provide support for graphic design, marketing management, social media, advertising, copywriting email support and more.  

What happens if you create this beautiful work of art, but no one knows about it. The awareness of your arts organization is only as good as the strategies you employ. So if you’re overworked (and we know you are), where do you get the guidance, training, and planning you need to set yourself up for long-term success?


If you don’t have time (or the inclination) to create these plans yourself, let us use our expertise and do it for you. Defining your goals and strategy will help you set priorities. That allows you to plan your work and ensure that all efforts are goal-driven. With a documented plan, you can ensure that every bit of effort translates into tangible results.

What do you Need help With?

Tell us your challenges and goals.

You know there are struggles working in the arts. You have limited money, time, and resources.

To thrive, you need to be efficient and strategic in all areas. But what if you don’t have time or the resources to do that right now.  How do you get out of the cycle before the passion turns into burnout?

Let’s start the conversation and get your organization focused and making the most of the resources you do have.
