How are London artists coping with the cost-of-living crisis?

Several artists shared their concerns about the cost-of-living crisis and its impact on their careers at the Battersea Affordable Art Fair.

Acme’s recent artist tenant survey found that only 12% of artists can support themselves financially through their art due to the cost-of-living crisis.

A loss of community due to national cuts in funding further threatens the existence of artists, prompting charitable organisations to step in and offer support.

Battersea Affordable Art Fair’s mission is to democratise the art world and make art accessible to all.

The Affordable Art Fair will be returning to Battersea between the 6th and 10th March, 2024.
