Calling an open meeting to establish an Independent Artists Collective of Baltimore. Our goals for this meeting include:
-Establishing collective standards for the process of payment to artists, and communication surrounding contracted work.
-Creating accountability surrounding pay schedule and communicated expectations.
-Determining late fees for significantly delayed payments for contracted work.
-Developing a 6-month, 1-year, and 2-year plan to raise the bar for Baltimore to be a sustainable place to live as an artist.
-Accepting volunteers to approach different institutions, organizations, and venues, as a coalition to forge agreement on new standards.
Everybody eats. Let’s set the table together.
As professionals, we face the challenge of limited data about who we are, what we do and where we work, which makes it hard to advocate for and secure funding and policies that benefit us. But worry not! Your profile can help promote your work and provide data for our region. When filling out your profile, you can control who sees the content in every field. Visibility options include: everyone, only me, all members, and my friends. Just a heads up, the “Only Me” option includes TAMA administration so we can collect the data for the field.
