Membership Benefits


Arts Professional vs General Member

Arts Professional membership is for women identified artists, writers, and curators only. Registered Arts Professionals can create a WEAD Directory artist listing which includes uploading 10 photos, an artist statement, video, social media links, and becoming part of the WEAD search engine. Arts Professional memberships also have access to blogging, posting events, and using WEAD’s artist lightbox.

NOTE FOR Women Arts Professionals: Paying for membership does not automatically ensure that you will be listed in the Directory. Although Listings are not juried, WEAD must review all submissions to ensure that they are not commercial and that they fit under the broad umbrella of our mission statement.

General Membership is for art supporters of all genders. General members get access to blogging, posting events, and using WEAD’s lightbox.

Why Pay Dues

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.
