Through Help Desk, Pentacle works with a limited number of artists/companies, pairing each of them with a highly experienced arts administrator in a guided mentorship that focuses on strategic planning, guidance and infrastructure support. The mentorship is personal and unique to each participant. Help Desk challenges artists/companies to measure whether text-book solutions really are the answer, or where they should use them as a starting point for the creation of an organizational system designed for their particular need.
