“Being an artist-led organisation, the rights of artists are central to everything that we do. Grand Union is committed to commissioning new work and in order to enable this artists need to be paid fairly for their time and their labour in this creative process.
As a regional advocate for the Paying Artists Campaign, we have been calling for a more open discussion on fair pay for artists, and feel that a shift is beginning and attitudes are changing. There is more lobbying to be done and we will continue to promote the work of the campaign.”
