WORK IN PROGRESS
AWI is drafting a proposal on the minimum wage for fairer pay for artists and art workers. The rate table strives to become a reference for workers and their clients and to be used to compile and draft announcements. Furthermore, it aims to establish exhibition projects, residencies, presentations, publishing projects, educational activities and public programs, online content production, design, curation, and organisation. Collated through the comparison with the models already in use in other countries and by workers from other sectors in Italy, the rate table is the result of the encounter with specialists, museum directors and other patrons. It will be tested by a variety of institutions of different scale and legal framework before being proposed to the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities to be implemented as a standard on a national level.
