Event description

Description

How do we value our time and creative output? How can we maintain a sustainable art practice or creative career in an art world rife with offers of payment via ‘exposure’?

In this free artists’ workshop led by Artist Union England, we’ll look at ways of ensuring creative labour is financially compensated, navigating and negotiating expectations, value, and payment.

Groundwerk is a monthly series of free practical workshops for artists and creatives wishing to gain the skills to support their practice.

This workshop is free to attend and open to all but booking is recommended, as spaces are limited.

// ABOUT ARTISTS’ UNION ENGLAND

Artists’ Union England is a new trade union for professional visual and applied artists, and artists with a socially engaged practice.

Artists’ Union England was publicly launched in May 2014 by a cross section of artists from across the country, in response to an evident need for representation from a trade union. Unlike other cultural professionals, artists have had no collective voice in the form of a trade union, to represent them at work and to lobby and advocate on their behalf.

As a trade union, AUE aim to represent artists at strategic decision-making levels and positively influence the value and role artists play within society.
