Context/Overview

The objective of the proposed project is to carry out an investigation to collect data on the working conditions of artists in the Peruvian context, which is widely informal, independent, and intermittent, and where multi-employment is common. This research will also allow the validation of the information collected in the dialogue tables held during in 2021 within the framework of the development of a new artist law. The results of year 2021 will thus be expanded, detailed and validated through the methods of applied research. Specific conclusions and recommendations will be included to be taken into account by public and private organizations. The results of the research will also help the Peruvian state better understand the size of the cultural and creative workforce in order to better calculate the necessary budgets to implement needed measures, notably regarding social security and pensions for artists and cultural professionals.
