What is the WAV Artist Council?

A pilot “WAV Artists Council” is in place for one year (Feb 2014-Feb 2015).  The council is made up of seven elected representatives, selected from residents who have gone through the artist selection process. The council meets monthly, for meetings that last no longer than 90 minutes.

The role of the pilot WAV Artists Council is to make decisions and provide oversight for three specific areas:

  1. New resident orientation
  2. Marketing
  3. Programming and events (specifically in the first year, ArtWalk)

How do I get involved with the Artists Council?

Attend a meeting or contact us online. The agenda for each meeting will be posted one week in advance of the meeting. Agendas will be posted on basecamp, in the mailroom, on the corkboard, and in the laundry room. The last ten minutes of each meeting will be reserved for public comment.

At the end of the pilot term, the council will make a recommendation as to whether it should remain in place, and if so may also recommend changes to its role, make-up, etc., for consideration by the entire community.

Where does the funding come from for WAV Artists Council projects?

The WAV Artists Council is an all volunteer council. Many of our projects are donations from our volunteers and community members. We have 3 revenue streams in place. Donations are accepted online via Fundly. We apply for grants to support our creative projects. Finally we sell art prints and products online.
