Convened by Platform BK (Rune Peitersen and Joram Kraaijeveld) and the Norwegian Association of Curators (Martin Braathen and Silja Leifsdottir), with W.A.G.E. (Lise Soskolne)

Through the extensive organising and lobbying efforts of artists, the agenda of artist’s fees have been established in numerous contexts throughout the world. Fee calculators in particular, have been explored as a tool to generate a basis of negotiation for artists in their day to day work relations. How can these efforts be built upon, and extended through engagement by other freelancers in the arts, including curators? In particular, how could this be considered in a way that also extends to grasp the international basis of some freelancer’s work? What effective modes of organising might support improved conditions both within, and across jurisdictions?
