Full description

The data was generated by an investigation into the economic circumstances of Australian Artists and their work patterns, through surveying a sample of artists.  It was conducted in 2009 by Prof David Throsby and Anita Zednik, funded by the Australia Council.  Results are reported in a publication titled “Do you really expect to get paid? An economic study of professional artists in Australia” available online at http://www.australiacouncil.gov.au/resources/reports_and_publications/subjects/artists/artist_careers/do_you_really_expect_to_get_paid

This was the fifth in a series of studies commissioned by the Australia Council for the Arts conducted by Throsby: previous related surveys were conducted in 1983, 1987, 1993 and 2002.  This survey updates and expands the information collected in the earlier studies.

The study profiles the careers of practicing professional artists across all major art forms (except film).  It is based on telephone interviews with 1,030 practicing professional artists conducted in October through December 2009.  An initial list of 30,000 names was generated by contacting the relevant Arts organisation.  A random sample was selected and potential respondents screened for suitability.  A survey company then conducted phone interviews with suitable respondents.

Artistic Occupations were grouped into 8 main categories for tracking and analysis:

  1. writers
  2. visual artists
  3. craft practitioners
  4. actors and directors
  5. dancers and choreographers
  6. musicians and singers
  7. composers, songwriters and arrangers
  8. community cultural development workers

The Australia Council report "Do You Really Expect to Get Paid" includes analysis of:

  • The artist population
  • Training and education
  • Career progression
  • Artistic achievements
  • Patterns of working time
  • Income and expenditure
  • Employment and social security
  • Professional practice issues
  • Usage of new technologies
  • Longer term trends.

It includes longitudinal analysis referencing the earlier surveys.
