Paying Artists Campaign

Join the Paying Artists campaign and help make sure that visual artists get paid for their work.

Visual artists in the UK are regularly expected to develop and exhibit their work without a fee. 

The Paying Artists campaign aims to secure payment for artists who exhibit in publicly-funded galleries.

Paying artists for the work they do will mean that, in years to come, we’ll still be able to access quality art which reflects the broadest possible spectrum of human experience.
