Comment gagner sa vie en étant artiste ?

Tout en continuant de nous battre pour sortir de la crise, nous devons nous donner la chance, non pas de survivre, mais de réussir.

Pour commencer, réévaluons nos stratégies professionnelles et les modèles correspondant à nos métiers. Comment utilisons-nous notre potentiel et nos ressources ? Que signifie le terme durabilité pour les arts, et comment l’atteindre ?

D'Art 48 presents the results of the online survey on International Entrepreneurship in the Arts, disseminated among members of the International Federation of Arts Councils and Culture Agencies in May–June 2015.
"Nobody cares how you pay your rent. Your job is to show us something we didn’t know we needed to see. But it is, nonetheless, a job."

A study of “Fair Working Conditions in the Performing Arts and Music?” was published recently. Maximilian Norz of the artists’ initiative called “art but fair” in collaboration with the Hans Böckler Foundation and the Cultural Policy Association (of Germany) has researched working conditions for creative artists in the German speaking countries of Europe.
