HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
FREE for CultureWorks members. Sliding scale for the public (please see below).
The cost for these workshops will be on a sliding scale basis. We recognize that this kind of learning experience is often cost prohibitive for individuals, particularly people of color, low-income/low-asset individuals, and those from grassroots and small organizations.
Please find a cost that works for you. If you can afford to pay at the high end of the scale, please do! If you want to attend but can't pay, please contact us via the email link below - and we'll figure out accommodations.
WHAT IF I WANT TO ATTEND ALL WORKSHOPS IN THE SERIES?
These workshops historically tend to sell-out fast (real fast). Folks interested in reserving spots for upcoming sessions and/or attending all sessions are encouraged to purchase a "Series Pass", for sliding scale costs starting at $40 (whatta' bargain)!
A NOTE ON ACCESSIBILITY
CultureWorks is committed to providing accessible programs, events, and services. Our space is wheelchair accessible with a gender-neutral, accessible bathroom. Please contact us via the email link below regarding additional accommodations - and we’ll do our best to assist.
ABOUT GETTING PAID:
Money isn't everything - but building different relationships and revenue streams is.
Getting Paid is a quarterly workshop series for artists + arts organizations, where folks can build fundraising skillsets that express the impact of their work and tap into funding networks and resources. Whether you're seeking your next grant, figuring out how to maximize your personal network, or creating a strategy to form long-term donor relationships that support your artistic vision + mission, Getting Paid is here to help you get paid + support your work.
Each quarter will cover a different fundraising topic and will sometimes feature local guest speakers, panelists, and facilitators who will share expertise, resources and opportunities.
