Artists at Work
The City of Madison is seeking proposals for 2022-2023 that will contribute to workforce development and diversification of the creative sector. The Artists at Work (AAW) program will provide a unique opportunity for one-time support of either $15,000 or $25,000 for Madison non-profit organizations wishing to reinstate an arts position that they eliminated due to the COVID-19 pandemic or establish a new position utilizing the unique skills of artists and creative workers for organizational sustainability.
Proposals for positions that employ and utilize the unique skills of artists and creative workers will be reviewed in two phases. Phase 1 – General applicant info and statement of interest, & Phase 2 – Full application including position description, salary information, letters of recommendation, supplemental materials.
This is a great way that the City can contribute to stabilizing our economy across diverse sectors while ensuring that the vibrancy and culture artists bring to Madison return to our non-profit spaces and our neighborhoods.
