A fair share - direct funding for individual artists from UK arts councils

A new report published by A-N, by Dany Louise, finds that few individual artists apply for funding in their own right from UK Arts Councils and even fewer are successful.

“What this means is that there is little direct funding being given to artists to pursue and develop their own projects, under their own control - under 20% of available funding for the visual arts in England, 14% for Northern Ireland and around 18% for Scotland and Wales in 2009-2010.”
