Support for Artists Work Group

Work Group Co-Chairs: Stacey Williams-Ng, Founder and Director, Wallpapered City and LaShawndra Vernon, Executive Director, Artists Working in Educations (AWE)

Imagine MKE staff leader: Kennita Hickman, Director of Artist Support and Outreach

This work group's main focus is to ensure that Milwaukee-based artists will have access to local financial resources, physical resources, and capacity building support to gain access to the local and national markets in order to earn a living or more of their living as artists.

We will measure the effectiveness of this result by annually surveying a significant and diverse cross-discipline sample of artists on whether the local market and supports for artists are improving.
