How It Works

WAGENCY facilitates the transaction and fair remuneration of artists' labor in the nonprofit sector. It supplies artists with digital tools and the necessary collective agency to negotiate W.A.G.E. fees or withhold content from art institutions when they decline to pay according to W.A.G.E. standards. Instead of a coordinated strike mechanism, WAGENCY enables a matrix of individual boycotts that can and will happen at any given time. Follow a simple 5-step process to increase your bargaining power with institutions and build collective strength together with other artists.
