WAGENCY UK: An evening of transnational recruitment

Places for this event are free but limited. Click here to book.

Launched last month in New York by W.A.G.E., WAGENCY is a transactional platform that facilitates the fair remuneration of artists’ labor in the U.S. nonprofit sector – but artists don’t have to live in the U.S. to use it. If you have been contracted by an art institution in the United States to provide content, you can become a WAGENT and use WAGENCY. Join us for drinks, transnational recruitment, and a live demo of WAGENCY at Cubitt.

This event emerged from an invitation by Cubitt for W.A.G.E. to help in determining payment standards for artists and other workers as part of the 2018/19 programme. A workshop organised in discussion with not/nowhere, Transmission Gallery and the Institute of Contemporary Arts will take place at the ICA on Saturday 10th November, to think through resource distribution in arts organisations, particularly looking at how artist-led cooperative models can develop new approaches and support artists working in collective political struggle – full details here


W.A.G.E. (Working Artists and the Greater Economy) is a New York-based activist organisation founded in 2008. Its mission is to establish sustainable economic relationships between artists and the institutions that contract their labor, and to introduce mechanisms for self-regulation into the art field that collectively bring about a more equitable distribution of its economy.
