Is the language we use around the arts helping or hurting? Do you pay yourself a living wage to make your work? Do you value your work as something that needs to happen? Does “non-profit” equal art-as-charity, a luxury commodity, a non-necessity? Does it support entrepreneurship? How does this language help art-makers to be seen, fundraise and be recognized as important and critical?
