Abstract

Is artists' exploitation inevitable or is it just a question of identifying effective, enduring, preventative frameworks? Developed by independent arts researcher Dr Susan Jones and organised collaboratively with Dr Jon Blackwood, Gray's School of Art, the Aberdeen mini summit held in June 2023 was informed by artists' activism on pay and conditions including creation of FRANK in 2021 and weindustria's 2023 research report Structurally F*cked. The research questions included: 1) what will equitable working environments look and feel like for artists? 2) what attitudes and measures will ensure lasting improvement in artists' social and economic status? 3) what would counter any impediments to their achievement?
