Making a Career in the Arts
Presented by SAMAG in collaboration with NAVA and Artspace
Following a tumultuous 2016 and with the median creative income for Australian artists being well below the national average, we check in with four Sydney artists and arts practitioners to talk the highs, lows and everything in between for creating a career in the arts. We will look past the stereotypes to talk through fair pay and funding, wellbeing, paying the rent, the business of being an artist and what the future holds.
