The NewBridge Project is an artist-led organisation and regional advocate for the Paying Artist campaign;
- We recognise the valuable and integral role artists play in our society
- We recognise the huge amount of time that goes into the creative process, from initial research, development and fundraising to collaborating, marketing and producing
- We recognise the necessity to nurture and support artists
- We recognise the need to be open and up front about opportunities and their pay
There is absolutely no question that artists should be paid for their time, exhibition of art works, intellectual property and creative contribution to society, something which arts organisations, galleries and arts festival could not survive without. The Paying Artist campaign has instigated an important conversation, we all need to continue to support their work in order for real change to occur.
