about bdac / the consultancy

Betty’s Daughter Arts Collaborative is a cultural arts consultancy based in New York City. Our vision: to power creative action for social impact in every corner of the country.

Since 2009, BDAC has been supporting leaders and administrators in progressive organizations on a mission to create real, sustained social impact. Our clients know where they want to go; we provide the how. To date, Betty’s Daughter Arts Collaborative has worked with more than fifty organizations. Together, we are co-creating a radical future.

Led by activist-artist-scholar Ebony Noelle Golden, BDAC bridges many worlds. Our holistic, results-oriented perspective makes us effective strategists, educators, coaches, and community organizers. We power progressive social change through community-designed, culturally-relevant engagement initiatives and creative projects. Because we think in decades, not years, we know how to turn any program into a sustainable force. Our clients rely on us to bridge knowledge gaps and carve a clear path forward.


We provide strategy, design, and training services. We emphasize measurable results, long-term planning, and a holistic perspective.
