Study Room Guide: Take the Money and Run? Some Positions on Ethics, Business Sponsorship and Making

Notes

There are lots of guides for artists on how to earn a living from art or how to raise funds to support making it, but few which help us ask what the ethical implications are of the routes we choose. In this Study Room Guide, arts, social justice and environmental group Platform has selected some key texts that they think are useful in helping to position yourself ethically with regard to financing or supporting artistic practice through business or corporate sponsorship.

Since this Study Room Guide was published, Platform and Live Art Development Agency ran a Reading Group to discuss the texts that the Guide featured. In November 2012, as a result of this group, an appendix was added and can be found on page 14 of this document. In April 2013 a designed and printed version of the Guide was published by Platform.
