Paying Artists aims to secure payment for artists who exhibit in publicly-funded galleries
We found 71% of artists were not receiving payment for exhibiting in publicly funded galleries. Two years after launching our campaign, and after extensive consultation and testing, Exhibition Payment Guide has now been published to support fair payment for artists. About the Campaign

The culmination of extensive consultation and testing across the sector. It is a significant milestone in the journey to fair pay for artists.
