“It’s hard for all working mums (and dads) to find a work/life balance isn’t it – what’s so different for artists?” This was a question posed recently by a friend over dinner. I’d been banging on about APT – Artist Parents Talking – specifically about APT’s current search for funding, without stopping to think that she might not understand the basic premise of the network.
Rates of Pay - a-n The Artists Information Company
Funded by Arts Council England, this research study in 2004 prefaced new resources from a-n to extend the Code of Practice and demonstrate good practice within artists’ fees and payments, for use by artists and public-sector employers and commissioners. For current sample rates go to Guidance on fees and day rates and for latest Paying artists research go to www.a-n.co.uk/tag/paying-artists
In 2004, a-n commissioned a team from University of Newcastle to undertake research into context, attitudes and approaches to paying artists for their skills and services.
