WPA is in the process of converting from an artist-centered to a more artist-driven model. Future projects will be conceived and realized increasingly "by artists, for artists," meaning that artists will conceive, curate, produce, contextualize, and critique the majority of our activities.

Artists are invited to submit a 100 word project proposal on an ongoing basis by emailing ideas@wpadc.org. We encourage artists to propose shows not with their own work but instead with artists they work in close dialogue with, or artists they may not know but would like to have an opportunity to work with. Proposals could be for a range of different projects including public work, site-specific installations, workshops, talks, and performances. More information about this ongoing opportunity can be found here.
