I strongly believe the arts should be able to be created by and enjoyed by all, no matter their upbringing, resources, etc. I recommend you first read this article about how difficult it is to work in the art world if you are not rich. Then visit the Easel Initiative website to be more hopeful.
Thanks to its structural dependence on a small group of high-net-worth collectors and donors, hiring in some quarters of art world tends to favor those with the right connections and similar frames of reference.
We intend to counter the trend that a career in the arts is exclusively for the privileged by providing a free resource to guide and advise all students who wish to pursue a career in the arts, but lack the contacts, knowledge or funds.
