Hey everyone -
Crowd Source funding causes are a dime a dozen these days (not complaining, just recognizing the awesome fact that we have choices). I'd like to draw your attention to a particular cause today that needs your help. If you are a working artist, this concerns you.
A group of artists are attempting to create a website that would allow artists to safely and fairly grade the companies that contract work to them - much like Angie's List. This site would be devoted solely on artists and would contain educational and legal materials and resources as well. Companies (new and established) could be educated on what their scores mean, so they can see what they're doing right and wrong in the eyes of their contractors. Artists would be able to see if potential employers are fair and pay on time, etc. There would be contract templates, drawn up by lawyers, for artists and companies alike to use when establishing relationships with one another.
