The Teaching Artist Wage Calculator

I hope this calculator will act as a catalyst for the field. If we understand what a teaching artist ought to be paid, we can begin, as a field, to work towards a livable wage, stabilizing and strengthening the work teaching artists do in arts education, creative youth development, and arts in community, across the United States.

The purpose of this tool is to help teaching artists to negotiate at least a living wage, though you deserve more, and to help hiring organizations advocate for funding to pay teaching artists at least that living wage.
