Working Artist Wednesdays or WAW is Amplify Arts’ monthly series of professional development workshops for artists. Included as part of Amplify’s Artist Membership, each 4-month long unit is designed to strengthen peer networks and relationships with arts professionals, promote collaborative learning, and give working artists the tools they need to apply for grants, exhibitions, and residencies with confidence; successfully start and run small business; and tap into national and local resources.
