Artists U is an incubator for changing the working conditions of artists.

  • Artists U is a grassroots, artist-run platform for changing the working conditions of artists.
  • Make art. Don’t starve.
  • We want to change the conversations artists have in our heads, with each other, and with the world.
  • We push artists to build lives that are balanced, productive, and sustainable.
  • We are skills-based, not need-based: we work to empower artists to create their lives and their art.
  • We don’t give advice. We don’t do things for you.
  • Everything we do is artist-to-artist and free for all participants.
  • We started in Philadelphia and now we work in Baltimore and South Carolina too (and sometimes in other places).
  • We have two tools: group meetings and one-on-one planning sessions.
