For many artists, establishing the economic value of their art can be a very abstract concept. Too often, we hear about artists being underpaid or working for free in return for ‘exposure’.  That’s why we have invited Toby Dennett from The Arts Council of Ireland & Aoife Carry from Twisted Lane Productions to empower you and provide an overview of the importance of fair and equitable remuneration for the contracting of artists.

This Zoom session will run on October 10, from 11 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Toby will introduce The Arts Council’s Paying the Artist policy, and Aoife Carry will bring her point of view as an Artist.

The training is free and is exclusively for ISACS members.
