“It’s time that the value of artists’ work matched the value of artworks. Situations is committed to paying artists in whatever capacity they work with us – it is a fundamental principle of our working method. We are equally passionate about ensuring that artists’ work is suitably remunerated in public art commissioning and valued at the very heart of public policy. Such contributions take time to develop and should be embedded at its core. If artists are to contribute to the transformation of our towns and cities over the next decade, this cannot be achieved as a form of in-kind support. It’s time artists were equally valued as other professionals.” 

Claire Doherty, Director, Situations
