Artists’ welfare: why it’s time to act
January 4, 2019
Compared to other Australian workers, professionals in the performing arts will end up poorer, have worse mental and physical health, and a shorter lifespan. They have made substantial contributions to our culture – yet traditional support networks all too often fail them. This means, as a society, that we have failed them. And in doing so, we have failed ourselves.
… Maybe, too, we need to go back to the fork in the road others have travelled. The personification of that in Australian theatre was an actor-manager, “low comedian” and later Victorian MLA, George Selth Coppin.
