Paying Artists Campaign

Posted on 20 May 2014

Castlefield Gallery has signed up to a-n’s Paying Artists campaign and we urge you to do the same.

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

“Castlefield Gallery recognises that investing in artists is essential to the future of the incredible art that this country has to offer and we are committed to paying artists fees for exhibition and other work.” Kwong Lee, Director, Castlefield Gallery

Whether you’re a gallery visitor, artist, art student, policy maker or run a gallery, read a-n report ‘Paying Artists – Securing a future for visual arts in the UK’ and sign up to their campaign.

  • Why Pay Artists

    Why Pay Artists?

    Visual artists in the UK are regularly expected to develop and exhibit their work without a fee. We don't think this is right. The Paying Artists campaign aims to secure payment for artists who exhibit in publicly-funded galleries. We believe 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. Whether you're a gallery visitor, artist, art student, policy maker or run a gallery, please read our report 'Paying Artists -- Securing a future for visual arts in the UK' and sign up to the campaign.
