Conditions for artists
The work situation of artists is fairly unique. Few have permanent positions, while many are freelancers and tend to have a wide variety of clients. One of the tasks of the Swedish Arts Grants Committee is to compile and disseminate information on the financial and social conditions of artists.
What are artists earning? How do changes in the tax and social security systems affect the situation of artists? Our studies and reports provide the Government and Riksdag with basic data and can also provide you as an artist with a clearer picture of conditions in your sphere of practice. Via our website, the Artist’s Guide, you can learn about practical issues such as types of business, forms of employment, taxes etc.
