On January 13/14 2014, a group convened at Cage
, NY to establish the policy for W.A.G.E. Certification. Over two days, A.K. Burns, Howie Chen, Andrea Fraser, Alison Gerber, Stephanie Luce, Andrew Ross, Marina Vishmidt, W.A.G.E. and Artists Space staff - representing the institutional side and the organization as a test case - thought through, negotiated, and arrived at a fee schedule and revised set of principles that now constitute W.A.G.E. Certification.
The Summit findings have been collated and developed into a policy statement that will be available on this site and presented publicly at a conference organized by Common Practice New York
on May 18, 2014, after which W.A.G.E. will begin Certifying nonprofit organizations nationally, and on a voluntary basis.
