WPA is now artist-driven. That means that artists curate all of our programs, pitching us ideas that can include exhibitions or performances of other artists work such as film series, workshops and lectures.

For artists who want to learn more about our open call for ideas, or who want to talk to us in person about ideas they have brewing, we are introducing “Idea Days”. The first Idea Day is Thursday, October 18, 2018 from 5-7pm.

Artists, reserve a 15 minute meeting with WPA staff here.

Before you meet with us, make sure to read our idea submission process and eligibility requirements first. We value artist-driven projects that are collaborative, inclusive, imaginative, rigorous, and distinct.
