Organization description:
Satellite Collective believes in artists collaborating as equals, globally and virtually. We’ve reimagined fiscal sponsorship as a boutique, innovative, cost-effective alternative to catch-all programs from large institutions that charge exorbitant fees and lack a human touch.
