Paying the Artist

The Arts Council has published Paying the Artist: An Arts Council policy on the fair and equitable remuneration and contracting of artists. As Ireland’s national arts agency, it is committed to the principle of fair remuneration to artists with a special emphasis on equitable remuneration for equality and diversity in the arts. The best-practice principles include transparency on policies, open communications with artists, continuing improvements in rates, clear and comprehensive contracts with artists, clear accounting of payments and fees to artists, and protection of artists’ copyrights. The publication also includes a time line for implementation, clearly stating actions, desired outcomes and deliverables.
