Why pay artists?

The Paying artists campaign, shaped and generated by artists through a-n and AIR, has launched a new campaign video:

What is the Paying Artists Campaign

Visual artists in the UK are regularly expected to develop and exhibit their work without a fee. We don’t think this is right.

The Paying Artists campaign aims to secure payment for artists who exhibit in publicly-funded galleries. We believe paying artists for the work they do will mean that, in years to come, we’ll still be able to access quality art which reflects the broadest possible spectrum of human experience.

Whether you’re a gallery visitor, artist, art student, policy maker or run a gallery find out more by visiting payingartists.org.uk – make sure you read the report ‘Paying Artists – Securing a future for visual arts in the UK’ and sign up to the campaign.
