Working Artist Wednesdays or WAW is Amplify Arts’ monthly series of professional development workshops for artists. 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 a small business; and tap into national and local resources.

Sessions are $5 and occur on the first Wednesday of every month (or purchase an Artist Membership and gain access to all WAWs for an entire year, among other benefits)

MORE INFO:

You may attend individual sessions within a unit (if you just need a refresher), but it is encouraged to attend all 4 sessions within the unit, as they build upon each other.

It is our hope that the $5.00 fee will not be restrictive to anyone who wishes to attend. However, if this is the case for you, please contact us. These fees help us with the costs of developing top notch content and bringing in excellent facilitators.
