It is now coming up on 4 years since the full introduction of the Payment Guidelines for Visual Artists. In that time we have see the Arts Council and the Arts Council of Northern Ireland affirm that organisations and events that they fund must pay artists in an equitable manner. We have also seen Dublin City Council adopt the policy and have news that other local authority areas are following suit.
This means that we should notice changes in artists’ incomes from exhibition making and all of the other work that is undertaken to support the sector. Therefore, we are now asking for you to participate in what we hope to be our biggest survey so far so that we can assess if there has been any improvement.
All of the information that you provide is strictly confidential to you. Therefore we ask that you are as open as possible, and can find some time to assist us by completing the survey.
The deadline for completion is Friday, 19th February… but we ask that you don’t put it off…
