JANUARY 2017
Fair Pay for Artists Issue


Happy New Year! We’ve been back in the NAVA office for a few weeks now and are already into the swing of things ready to take on whatever 2017 brings. 
 
We’re delighted to announce that today NAVA is launching a new campaign Fair Pay for Artists calling for industrial fairness for artists and other art professionals focused on making change so that artists are both valued for their contribution to society and fairly remunerated for their time and skills.

There are several components of the campaign with artist fees; superannuation; and artists' income supplement. You can support this campaign by signing and sharing our new petition on artist fees, write letters, join as a NAVA Member and take part in other actions as listed on our website. This is a campaign close to our hearts and we encourage you to participate in this important campaign. You can read the full media release here

You'll also notice Art Wires has a new look, we hope you will continue to enjoy reading the articles, finding out about the latest opportunities and stay connected to the NAVA Community.
