Free Associate Membership
CAA members throughout the country are eligible for a complimentary associate membership in Fractured Atlas, which gives you free access to low-cost healthcare options. Fractured Atlas, a reputable nonprofit arts service organization, has been referring members of related arts nonprofits to affordable healthcare insurance and services for many years through its Open Arts Network program.
Your associate membership also gives you access to free workshops and seminars, an online events calendar (you can submit your own listings), a networking and support forum for artists, and other benefits and services. CAA members can enroll by logging into their CAA account (with user ID and password) and clicking on the Fractured Atlas link.
CAA recognizes that health insurance is a major issue for the American artistic community. With the bulk of our peers working sporadically, indepedently, and/or with multiple organizations during their career, it’s difficult for artists, art historians, curators, critics, and educators to have consistent, affordable healthcare. Aside from the obvious benefits of helping CAA members address critical healthcare needs, there is another big advantage to teaming up with Fractured Atlas: strength in numbers. By banding together through Fractured Atlas’ Open Arts Network, artists and independent professionals can achieve the financial and negotiating leverage needed to capture the attention of the insurance industry.
