Livelihoods of Visual Artists research study was undertaken in order to address important information and evidence gaps in relation to the visual arts. It aims to inform the future work of the wider visual arts sector including Arts Council England and the Project partners. It is designed to understand the challenges and barriers faced by visual artists; the social, cultural and environmental factors affecting them; mobility of artists and the variation between sub-art forms within the visual arts and their relationship with the creative industries.
