Much of the current research about the arts and the recession emphasizes the effects of the economy on cultural organizations. But what about artists? How is the recession affecting the livelihoods and attitudes of individual creators?  A national study, commissioned by Leveraging Investments in Creativity, sheds some light on these questions. Join in the web seminar to hear the findings of this new research and to learn more about:

  • artist employment and income levels;

  • challenges and opportunities artists perceive in today's economy;

  • the kinds of services artists find most helpful during hard times.

This seminar also offers an update on trends in state arts agency grant funding to artists, plus a review of non-grant services designed to support artists' development and success.
