The Struggling [EXPLOITED] Artist

March 15, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

CARFAC National President Ingrid Percy, Studio XX Representative Roxane Halary and Curator Amber Berson will join together for a conversation on the importance of paying artists, and the complications that exist within unpaid internships in the arts.

The goal of this talk is to create a constructive dialogue on how to battle these issues; ways to help students and artists properly ask to be paid, how accepting unpaid work effects the diversity of the workplace in the Fine Arts and what artists and clients should expect from one another. This discussion will not only talk about the labor associated with the upkeep of an organization or studio, but also recognize the amount of emotional and mental labor associated to the people that complete this work.

An artist’s labor should not be exploited, but recognized and valued –

There will be some snacks and refreshments served following the event!

This panel is a collaboration with the Concordia Student Union, and their campaign against unpaid internships.
