artists and arts organizations take the pledge!
As working artmakers and arts organizations in NYC, we pledge not to take any crumbs from Amazon. We reject any outreach from Amazon including residencies, studio or performance space or exhibitions. We don't want to help art-wash or culture-wash a dirty deal by Amazon with any "Sub-Prime" offers to artists and we won’t give the city and state any cover by participating in any of their blatantly undemocratic, closed-door deals. What's bad for the community of LIC, the working poor and the working class is also bad for artists.
