Artists Health Care

"Colby talks about how artists are often excluded from basic services that those working in other sectors can take for granted, thus the importance of Woodhull’s Artist Access program. “When you don’t have what is considered a real job in the United States of America, you don’t have access to what are commonly known as 'benefits' in this country. You get offers for so-called 'affordable' health care coverage, but I’m sorry, $500 per month is neither affordable or reasonable for an independent contractor or freelance worker in this country."
