We are W.A.G.E. Certified!
As of July 2015, BFI is officially W.A.G.E. certified (Working Artists and the Greater Economy), retroactively for 2014 and (pending closing our current fiscal year) for 2015, ensuring that we have and will continue to compensate artists fairly.
W.A.G.E. Certification is a program initiated and operated by Working Artists and the Greater Economy that publicly recognizes non-profit arts organizations demonstrating a history of, and commitment to, voluntarily paying artist fees that meet a minimum payment standard.
Its specific goal is to establish and guarantee standards of minimum compensation and organizational support for artists in the non-profit arts economy. Its broader goal is to work towards the fairer and more equitable distribution of resources in the contemporary art field and in society at large.
