a-n is seeking artists from across the UK with a variety of skills and a wide range of experiences to join Artists Council for the next three-year term.
Artists Council is an advisory group to a-n’s Board and Executive that plays a key role in advocacy, lobbying and developing programmes.
In the past two years, Artists Council members have been involved in the Paying Artists campaign, attended international conferences such as the International Artists Association in Brussels, developed projects for members, taken part in research, and attended key art events such as Venice Biennale and Documenta.
Artists Council meets four times each year and alongside its key role to provide intelligence about issues affecting artists around the UK, members also act as ambassadors for a-n by supporting the distribution of information through their own networks.
a-n The Artists Information Company is the largest artists’ membership organisation in the UK. In the last three years, it has achieved its highest ever membership and income, reaching over 23,000 members and a £1m turnover.
Artists Council members receive payments to: attend quarterly Artists Council meetings; represent Artists Council at external meetings or events; contribute to the development and delivery of advocacy activities. Payments are based on the standard Artists Council day rate of £200 per day (£28.60 per hour). Fees for attending Council meetings are calculated as a half-day (3.5 hours) plus reasonable travel expenses. Fees for other Artists Council business and project delivery, or attendance at events, seminars, conference or training at the request of a-n The Artists Information Company, will be the same day rate plus reasonable travel expenses and per diems.
