MORE GOOD NEWS FROM W.A.G.E. (Working Artists and the Greater Economy)

As of August 2017, 44 organizations have been certified and have agreed to W.A.G.E.’s payment provisions to artists.  New payment categories have been added, including provisions to:  Compensate artists who participate in traveling exhibitions; and compensate artists who give a talk in conjunction with an exhibition — who will receive a separate compensation fee in addition to the money they receive for an exhibition. W.A.G.E., is the activist organization founded in 2008 to establish “sustainable economic relationships between artists and the institutions.” For additional information visit W.A.G.E.’s new website.
