Event description
Ask for More Money by Art Handler, an Admin ⚙️ Workshop on January 30 at EFA Project Space

About this Event

Are you considering asking for a raise in your job or freelance work? This practical workshop will bring together a roundtable of speakers with experience negotiating salaries, wages and fees to share advice on how to ask for higher pay. Everyone will get a chance to rehearse and fine-tune their ask in front of peers, experts, and bosses and receive their feedback.

As arts workers we often expect low pay, making it all the more crucial to advocate for our value—but these are difficult conversations. Employers might use any number of reasons, consciously or not, to pay you less. The purpose of our session is to build confidence in your ability to negotiate and get paid.

This event is organized and facilitated by Clynton Lowry and Lucy Hunter with Admin ⚙️, and hosted by the Shift Residency at EFA in partnership with CUE Art Foundation.

Clynton Lowry is an artist and writer, as well as the founder and editor-in-chief of Art Handler magazine, and founder of jobs.art. Lucy Hunter is the managing editor of Art Handler magazine. She is a PhD candidate in the History of Art department at Yale University, where her dissertation explores intersections of experimental art and corporate culture in the Cold War era.

Art Handler is the first publication to make the behind-the-scenes of the art world its focus. We celebrate the day-to-day grind that makes possible art’s rarefied and glamorous scene. Art Handler’s goal is to uncover the inner workings of labor and logistics in the art world—conversations that are too often buried and ignored. More than a magazine seeking readers, we are building a platform for an expanded consideration of art culture.

This workshop is part of the Admin ⚙️ series, a space for arts administrators to support one another, discuss pressing issues, and workshop new forms of cultural institutions. Admin does so by developing resources and organizing events that draw on personal experience and a collaborative spirit. All meetings are free. Based in New York City, Admin's current administrators include Tracy Fenix, Noe Gaytan, Melissa Liu, Natalia Nakazawa, Kira Simon-Kennedy and David Xu Borgonjon.

CUE Art Foundation is a dynamic visual arts center dedicated to creating essential career and educational opportunities for emerging and under-recognized artists of all ages. Through exhibitions, arts education, and public programs, CUE provides artists and audiences with sustaining and meaningful experiences and resources. CUE carries out its mission through its core programs, which include solo exhibitions for emerging and under-recognized artists; an annual fellowship for an emerging curator; mentorship and publication opportunities for emerging writers; professional development workshops for practicing artists and arts workers; and arts education intensives for high school students.

EFA Project Space's SHIFT Residency provides peer support, mentoring, and studio space for artists who work in arts organizations (as curators, educators, administrators, etc) to boost their personal creative practices. SHIFT honors these artists/arts workers' commitment to the arts community with a supportive environment to revitalize their creative practices. In addition to its role as a support network, SHIFT promotes advocacy for arts workers and seeks to increase equity and representation within the field.
