Durabilité

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 ? Quel rôle les arts peuvent-ils jouer face à un problème de plus grande envergure : aider à sauver la planète, l’environnement dans lequel nous vivons et travaillons ?

The creation and production of knowledge has been a monopole of industrialized economies. Their economic conditions are the guaranty to provide the better conditions to reach a privileged status. Generally, knowledge creation processes tend to have a predominant ethnocentric focus, in which so-called rich country or developed economy perspectives have prevailed. However, there are disciplinary subjects where the production of knowledge can be influenced not only by economic conditions but by cultural aspects as well. Arts management knowledge is a good example to support this proposition...
The article analyses both explicit and implicit policy approaches to regulating digital culture, as both remain relevant in ensuring that cultural content reaches its intended users. This provides the background for the investigation of the results obtained through the comparative policy analysis executed in the project ‘Access to Culture.
David Bowie virtually invented it. Madonna was the mistress of it. Reinvention. Publicly peeling away layers of identity revealing personae of varying degrees of style and substance. It’s what many artists do as a matter of course, a process of regeneration. Similarly, reinvention has been a project of the arts more broadly. Over the last decade-and-a-half, the arts has recreated itself as an industry, a community, an ecology, a profession and a sector, sometimes wearing elements of all these costumes simultaneously in an effort to remain relevant. But it has struggled to apply its...
When I was a kid, my mother was invited to join the Junior Women’s Committee of the Art Gallery of Ontario. It was a social group, but they were very helpful to the AGO, most notably because they started and ran an excellent program whereby members could rent paintings from the collection. I can’t imagine such a group running such a program these days, but I’ve been thinking about volunteers and volunteerism in the arts and how often it does not work so well.

Most artists earn very little. Nevertheless, there is no shortage of aspiring young artists. Do they give to the arts willingly or unknowingly? Governments and other institutions also give to the arts, to raise the low incomes. But their support is ineffective: subsidies only increase the artists' poverty. The economy of the arts is exceptional.
To what extent are employment policies and Active Labor Market Programs (ALMP) in Arab Mediterranean countries capable of reducing the mismatch in cultural and creative sectors and supporting youth employability? This study aims to identify the main obstacles facing job creation in these areas, and assess gaps between the supply of skills (by universities and training centers) and their demand (by the labor market).
Many senior arts executives believe it is their role to provide leadership, and they manage to build effective boards to pursue their vision of the organization. Sometimes this works, but very often it doesn’t. Very often, board members abdicate their responsibilities and allow themselves to be led astray by a persuasive executive director.
In an ideal world the development of dance, art and music should not have to be so intricately tied to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) – nor should it be tied to the public purse either. Increased CSR has121105 - stage_curtains[1] undoubtedly allowed dance companies to grace more stages, kept art exhibitions open for longer, and facilitated free admission to creative festivals. When the curtain goes up, the show dubbed ‘corporations are great for society’ may be considered spectacular. Often all the audience sees is what has been carefully constructed in the form of entertainment.
How does sharing economy contribute to the shift towards sustainability? How can new economic models build different forms of knowledge and thinking? What role can cultural sector play in achieving this change?
"Reproduction, appropriation, new narratives, and opposition to hegemonies: techniques art has used to challenge the mass-produced cultural propaganda of fascism, late imperialistic capitalism and outmoded intrinsically conservative, individualistic and modernist beliefs about autonomy. This type of avant-garde approach had real cultural importance and it was dangerous."
