Support our #FairShareForArtists campaign!

    Paying artists fairly keeps them making art. Join us in supporting artists' rights today.

    #FairShareForArtists has launched

    We are delighted to announce the launch of our 
    #FairShareForArtists campaign.
    Did you know the UK creative industries are the fastest growing sector of the economy, worth £101.5 billion? Our art market is also thriving.

    But artists earn an average of £5,000 a year.

    Join us in supporting this vital source of artists' income.
