Sponsor a Member

Support the next generation of diverse artists. Everyone, no matter their color or circumstances, should be able to earn a living wage in the field they’re passionate about. The Graphic Artists Guild wants to make that a reality for people who are passionate about the graphic arts. With your help.

Our Sponsor a Member program is part of our ongoing commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) and aims to expand opportunities for both professionals and students.

We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore and contribute to the world of visual and graphic arts, regardless of their economic circumstances.
