About the Artist Development Program
The Artist Development Program (ADP) was designed by the Austin Music Foundation alongside leading music industry professionals. The intensive seven-month program aims to prepare a select group of emerging Austin artists to take their careers to the next level. ADP artists work closely with a team of mentors through both one-on-one consultations and classroom-focused group sessions, where artists are encouraged to discuss their goals and share ideas with peers.
