Artists Union England & Independents Biennial launch a new survey on work models for artists

Following a year where artists and freelancers have been left behind in the frantic grabbing of emergency funds from the organisations that make up the visual arts sector, Artists’ Union England are working with Independents Biennial to ask artists what their experience of employment has been over the last twelve months, and in the years before.

The survey will close in June, and results will be published via Independents Biennial at the end of the festival. The results will determine the actions of the festival, and the actions of the union, and better educate organisations of all sizes in how to care for, and value the artists they work with.

Independents Biennial: “Independents Biennial are proud to be working with Artists’ Union England on a national survey of access to paid work for artists. The survey seeks to understand typical forms of work in more depth than other surveys, and use the unique data collected to enable Artists’ Union England to better support individual artists.”
