A Path for Arts and Gig Workers in California: A new report

A new report examines how recent labor policies intended to improve conditions for independent workers affect arts workers. The report Arts Workers in California: Creating a More Inclusive Social Contract to Meet Arts Workers’ and Other Independent Contractors’ Needs emphasizes ''the need to reimagine employment policies for the future of artists and gig workers.''

Authored by the Urban Institute, and commissioned by the Center for Cultural Innovation as part of its AmbitioUS initiative with funding from the Hewlett Foundation, the report seeks to ''help arts advocates, labor advocates, and policy makers create more inclusive systems that expand protections and benefits for all types of workers.''
