An extensive campaign to improve the economic status of visual artists within the publicly-funded arts.
Paying artists is about transforming opportunities for artists, galleries, funders and policy makers alike. In removing the financial barriers faced by many artists, it will give publicly-funded galleries – and the public themselves – access to quality art which covers the spectrum of human experience.
It will bring value to the investment of all who fund it by encouraging diversity and equal opportunities for all artists. In doing so, it will play a direct role in ensuring Britain retains its reputation for supporting creative talent and delivering world-class art.
The Paying artists campaign has been developed by a-n The Artists Information Company and AIR: Artists Interaction and Representation to deliver this transformation and is based on studies of practice amongst artists and UK venues.
