Now Be Here is a unique project for artists created by an artist. The goal is to promote women, women-identifying and non-binary artists’ work and provide resources useful for furthering their careers. A recent study found that the art world is comprised of roughly 70% men and 30% women and heavily favors those with MFA degrees.* This structure inherently benefits white privileged artists. The concept behind the photo that launched this project was to physically demonstrate the large pool of artists yet to be included in the system. I have always seen this project as a labor of love and support for my community. Now Be Here is a project of Fulcrum Arts’ Emerge Program
I do not charge for this service and have never asked the participating artists to contribute. Your support goes directly towards this fiscally sponsored arts organization / nonprofit for the annual costs of creating content, maintaining, and hosting this resource.
ARTIST OPPORTUNITIES: If you are interested in providing an opportunity for these artists as a group, please contact me directly: HERE
ARTIST TO ARTIST SUPPORT: Some artists might unable or have a challenging time filling out the JOIN DIRECTORY form. If you are an artist and are interested in helping support these artists by donating your time, please contact me so I can make that connection.
