Lise Soskolne is an artist and core organizer of Working Artists and the Greater Economy (W.A.G.E.). An organizer within W.A.G.E. since its founding in 2008 and its core organizer since 2012, she has worked in nonprofit arts presenting and development in New York City since 1998 at venues including Anthology Film Archives, Artists Space, Diapason Gallery for Sound, Meredith Monk/The House Foundation for the Arts, Participant Inc, and Roulette Intermedium. In 2007 she was hired to use artists to increase the property value of Industry City, a 6.5 million sq ft industrial complex on the South Brooklyn waterfront. There she founded and managed the arts component in its broader regeneration with the intention of establishing a new paradigm for industrial redevelopment that would not displace workers, artists, local residents or industry but would instead build a sustainable community of working artists in a context that integrated cultural and industrial production.
