Do it together: answers to the precarious position of artists!
Low incomes, juggling jobs, uncertain futures, and a constant need to be social, available and willing to move: it is fair to say that performing artists live in precarious conditions. Individuals, organisations, artists and art workers from across Europe are responding with a multitude of initiatives that span across funds for artists with families, artist lobby organisations, alternative currency systems, space sharing platforms, fair practise labels, and more. How can the position of artists in the field be more sustainable? Hosted by Flanders Arts Institute, this session will map existing initiatives and collect methods of exchanging experiences. Contribute to the discussion by sharing inspiring examples you have encountered or are developing yourself.
