The Art of Survival: an OHS study of arts practioners in Queensland
Visual and performing artists make a significant contribution to the identity and fabric of Australian society, and increasingly to the vitality of Australia's economy. Statistical and anecdotal evidence suggests, however, that artists are not being well rewarded for their contribution to our culture and common wealth and, as a group, do not enjoy robust health. This study sets out to investigate the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) culture that exists in the arts sector and reveal artsworkers' levels of commitment to OHS practice. The study explores these topics in a context in which artists and their works are under-valued.
