Arts Barter Australia: An Action Research Project by Debby Maziarz
In 2014 Debby Maziarz received funding from an Australia Council for the Arts Executive Leadership grant to investigate bartering (a mutually agreed non-monetary exchange of goods and services) as a model for supporting artists in sustaining their practice. Over 18 months Debby developed her own understanding of this approach, and conducted research in order to contribute new knowledge to the field. Arts Barter Australia: An Action Research Project by Debby Maziarz documents that research and provides recommendations and insights to fellow barterers and artists. The full 20,000 word report will be launched soon and will be freely available for use by interested parties.
Arts Barter Australia: An Action Research Project by Debby Maziarz was prepared by Ricci-Jane Adams for creative knowledge collaborations and Debby Maziarz.
