Artist Incomes

Many artists have insufficient arrangements in place for their financial future

Throsby and Zednik estimate that 14 percent of artists had no arrangements in place for the future, such as superannuation, investments etc. Among those that did have some sort of arrangement for the future, only 40 percent believed that the arrangements would adequately meet their needs.

CACD practitioners and Dancers were the least likely to have adequate arrangements in place, whilst musicians and writers had the highest proportions who thought their arrangement would be adequate.
