From plight to might: towards a new arts equilibrium

Government and Arts Council England were praised in the Covid19 emergency for fast implementation of ad hoc strategies for financial support for arts and cultural institutions and job retention schemes for salaried staff. Despite the equality and diversity rhetorics of the funded arts, analysis of responses to the DCMS Inquiry into the Impact of Covid-19 reveal that individual visual artists who are a vital tranche of the arts workforce will suffer worst unless substantial remedial actions are taken to challenge and disrupt the arts equilibrium.

Due to a family emergency, this report is late. Please check back later to read this new analysis or send me a DM on @susanjonesarts to receive your copy on publication.
