Paying Artists Survey results #PAYARTISTS

Is it really that hard to equate being paid for the time, energy, resources given out for a return of income. 

Of course I know we artists gain a huge amount of development, new contacts, networkings, marketing and, and for every show we are taking part in…

And the results of the recent Paying Artists Survey results  so very clearly show that publicly funded organisations with remits to support artists are seriously falling short of their duties.

What do you think?   What has been your experience?

The artists and commissions… that hard

Key findings

– 72% of artists earn up to 10K a year from their art practice

– 17% earn between £10 and £20K – Artists cite ‘sharing their work with the public’ as the most important reason for exhibiting

– Nearly half of all artists reported that exhibiting their work is prohibitively expensive

71% of artists did not get paid to take part in exhibitions in publicly funded spaces… you do the math
