Ask For More Money

with Art Handler
Jan 30, 2020, 6:30-8:30PM

At EFA Project Space
323 West 39th Street, 2nd Floor, NYC

Are you considering asking for a raise in your job or freelance work? This practical workshop will bring together a roundtable of speakers with experience negotiating salaries, wages and fees to share advice on how to ask for higher pay. Everyone will get a chance to rehearse and fine-tune their ask in front of peers, experts, and bosses and receive their feedback.


As arts workers we often expect low pay, making it all the more crucial to advocate for our value—but these are difficult conversations. Employers might use any number of reasons, consciously or not, to pay you less. The purpose of our session is to build confidence in your ability to negotiate and get paid.

This event is organized and facilitated by Clynton Lowry and Lucy Hunter of Art Handler, the first publication to make the behind-the-scenes of the art world its focus, with Admin ⚙️, and hosted by the Shift Residency at EFA in partnership with CUE Art Foundation.
