Artist Payments During COVID-19

The listing period for this Classified has passed.

The arts community has faced unprecedented challenges due to the coronavirus pandemic, not knowing when we may all return to showing our work in public spaces.

With this in mind, CARFAC, RAAV, and Copyright Visual Arts developed recommended practices for paying artists during the COVID-19 crisis.

These were designed to help the visual (including craft) and media arts community establish standard procedures for paying artists for cancelled opportunities and new online engagements.

We continue to add to these guidelines, as we hear from artists and presenters.

We are asking artists to share information, through this poll, with us about what kinds of opportunities, paid or otherwise, you have been offered or received since March.

We know you’re probably tired of surveys. But your participation helps us advocate on your behalf, and to improve and expand our guidelines for you and all artists. We encourage you to also share this survey with other professional artists in your network.

Your answers will be treated confidentially. Individual data and comments will not be shared with any other individuals or organizations and it will not be released publicly. You may provide your name and contact information so we can get in touch for further details, but you are not required to provide it in order to participate in this survey.
