Questions for artists who wish to become a heARTist

 

Q: Are heARTists expected to work for free or will they be compensated for their work?

A: We will compensate heARTists for their work and do not expect them to work for free. Since becoming a professional artist can take years and even decades of training, we would like to help artists as much as we can and will compensate them for their time and great work. However, given that we are not running this project for profit and our funding comes from donations, we do have a limited budget for each artwork at the moment. For details, please contact us at officialheartists@gmail.com.
