Art & Development

Striking a balance between playing outside of the rules and professionalism

I finally received a reimbursement cheque from an arts event I participated in last year. While the experience was fantastic, I would not wish the stress and financial strain resulting from my participation on anyone, much less artists of modest means. It’s wonderful when organisations take risks on emerging artists, but when the organisation’s programs exceed its capacity, the costs can begin to outweigh the benefits. Those costs can be financial, but far worse, psychological.
