Artist Compensation Policy


Southern Exposure is committed to providing WAGE-standard stipends to all artists presenting projects, performing, and participating in exhibitions or public programs. We compensate teaching artists in all of our Artists in Education Programs with the exception of our One-on-One Youth Mentorship program as it follows field-wide guidelines that asks mentors to take on that role as enthusiastic volunteers. All of our fundraising initiatives offer compensation in the form of stipends or commissions for participating artists. We continually review our compensation practices and welcome the community's feedback.
