The Globe and Mail published the following article this morning about Statistics Canada's review of the status of artists in Canada, not so pretty.
Starving Artists? That's not far from the mark. Article by James Adams.
From the article:
"According to the Hill study, the poorest-paid Canadian artist category is that of female visual artist, with average earnings in 2005 of $11,421, closely followed by female artisan/craftsperson ($12,307), female musician/singer ($12,449), and female dancer ($12,502)."
Sad to see the female visual artist/craftsperson at the bottom of the barrel.
