Take part in a new sector-wide survey to collect essential data and produce a benchmark for Exhibition Payment.

The Exhibition Payment Survey 2018 is the next step in securing fair payment for artists and the latest focus of a-n’s Paying Artists Campaign which established sectoral support for exhibition payment with the publication of the Exhibition Payment Guide in 2016.

Surveys close Friday 18 May 2018.

Outcomes of this latest survey will, for the first time, establish a benchmark for actual payments made to artists and received by artists, for exhibitions across the UK. The data collected will mean future editions of the Exhibition Payment Framework within the Exhibition Payment Guide reflect artists’ experiences and the capacity of organisations to make fair payments informed by regional and national data and practice.

The Paying Artists Campaign was launched in 2014 in response to the needs of our 22,000 members to secure payment for artists who exhibit in publicly-funded galleries. In that time, we have consulted nearly 2,000 individuals – artists, curators, funders, arts producers, museums, galleries, local authorities and other public commissioners. There has been great support and willingness from all corners of the sector to help shape and see guidance put into practice.
