Artists Wage Hoping to Reinvent Generation of Creatives
During the election campaign, The Greens pushed forward the idea of an Artist Wage. The pilot program would fund 10,000 established or emerging artists for a year with a weekly allowance of $772 AUD. We’ve seen programs like this happen internationally, so why isn’t it established here in Australia?
2ser Breakfast was join by Jo Caust, an Associate Professor at the School of Culture and Communication at the University of Melbourne, to talk about why a scheme such as this would be so beneficial to the arts and creative community.
