a-n's editorial policy is not to censor material with the exception of that which offends common decency or is defamatory. Its view is that artists should be able to see what is on offer and, through reference to a-n's Good practice material including Establishing a charge rate, Code of practice, and Assessing opportunities, and discussion in their peer networks, make personal, informed choices about what opportunities are pertinent to their practice and professional circumstances.
This is because one artist's idea of a very bad opportunity may be another's idea of a good one.
