report title_do you really expect to get paid

A strategic priority for the Council is to support, sustain and creatively develop artist careers, from emerging careers to established ones.

Over the past 30 years recognition of the cultural, social and economic contribution of artists to Australian society has grown.report title_whats your other job Sadly, this has not translated into higher incomes for Australia’s artists, relative to other occupations. This research found that artists’ incomes as a whole are not keeping pace with the rest of the workforce.

There is a high level of uncertainty associated with the work of artists. So most artists do a range of paid work in both arts and non arts related jobs in order to make a living.Verna Lee This research found that less than half of artists income comes from their creative work, with the rest earned through arts related or non arts work. As in many countries, the majority of Australian professional artists do not get huge financial rewards for pursuing their art practice.Lealie Rice Rarely do people become professional artists for the money. They are driven by their passion and commitment to art.

Two pieces of research commissioned by the Australia Council for the Arts offer a comprehensive picture of the working lives of Australian artists.

An economic study of professional artists in Australia

('the artist survey')

The careers of practising professional artists across all major art forms (except film) are profiled in this report. It is based on interviews with professional artists and includes data on their numbers, incomes, achievements and challenges.

A census analysis of arts employment in Australia

('the census study')

This study analyses data from the past three Censuses. It includes a new measure of the size of total employment in the arts by including all relevant occupations and industries. It also gives a picture of artists working in non-arts industries. This analysis is based upon peoples ‘main job’ reported in lead up to the Census.

14 THINGS THAT KILLED THE GOOD OLE BOY

14 THINGS THAT KILLED THE GOOD OLE BOY
The Good Ole Boy is not an asshole redneck, though he will get drunk and start a fight with you every once in a while. The Good Ole Boy has the hard-working greasy blue jean style of a redneck. He has the good-hearted generous nature and long dirty hair of a hippie. He has the simplistic attitude of an actual Mexican, not one of these capitalism-polluted Mexican-Americans, but one from Mexico driving a beat up Dodge Dart with a milk crate for a seat. And he has the hair trigger ability to blow up recklessly and violently for no reason of a rock star
