Introduction
Arts Council England is committed to ensuring proper and fair payment to artists and those
who work in the creative industries is in recognition of their professional status, skills and
experience. We require that artists’ fees for activities funded by us should be in line with
recognised codes of practice set by the relevant lead bodies (some contact numbers are
given at the end of this sheet).
While we recognise that there is a great value in people having access to work experience
where it is offered and arranged properly and is a mutually beneficial arrangement, this
should not be used as a means of attempting to circumvent the Minimum Wage Regulations.
We require organisations receiving funding from us to ensure that salaries, fees and
subsistence arrangements are as good as or better than those agreed by any relevant trade
unions and employers’ associations.

Grants for the arts
Applicants to Grants for the arts should make sure they can provide proper and fair
payments to artists they will be working with when considering their budget. Applications for
grants for touring should ensure that, in addition to adequate fees, subsistence payments
are in line with the relevant trade union agreements.

Daily rates
Nationally recognised minimum rates are set by the entertainment unions and the
appropriate employers’ bodies. Entertainment union members can access information about
rates from their union. Where entertainment union rates exist, we expect at least the
minimum rate to be applied. There are at present no national professional organisations for
some sectors (including visual artists).
Following a ruling by the Office of Fair Trading on competition law, we are not
able to offer guidelines on rates of pay for artists.

The National Minimum Wage Act (1998) and the National Minimum Wage Regulations
(2001) place obligations on employers to pay their workers at least the national minimum
wage.
