Why To Pay
From its first 16 years, WEAD did not have members, did not charge members’ dues. On a less-than-shoestring budget, WEAD has produced high quality exhibits, outreach programs, website, and Directory listings. Costs have been underwritten by an all-volunteer hands-on Board through uncountable hours of pro bono labor, writing grants, managing programs, and parlaying the generosity of sporadic donors. Now, given WEAD’s global growth and current economic realities, to continue its mission WEAD must institute a dues system for members.
Your paying membership dues will secure more than WEAD’s monetary sustainability. Dues expand ownership, involvement, and ensure a healthier cross-fertilization of ideas among members.
When you pay dues, you join a proudly diverse community of activist arts supporters who use art in the service of global ecological and social justice.
What To Pay
Amounts are sliding scale. Choose one of four levels, or create a self-determined alternate amount, whatever you can best afford. All memberships are equal. Dues are renewed annually on the date first payment is received.
- Alternate Amount Option. This can only be paid by check/money order
