The Independent Media Arts Alliance (IMAA) announces new Media Arts Fee Schedule for 2022
Wednesday, October 20, 2021 – At its Annual General Meeting on September 28th, IMAA’s membership voted unanimously to adopt a new transitional fee schedule, as a step towards greater harmonization artist fee recommendations and standards in the Canadian and Québec arts communities.
The 2022 IMAA Fee Schedule introduces significant changes that will impact media arts presenters differently. We recognize that most organizations have fixed budgets and that many plan their programming well in advance. In some cases, transitioning to the new Fee Schedule may require time and adjustment.
We encourage presenters to gradually adopt the new fee structure throughout 2022 and 2023, with the goal of fully adhering to the IMAA Fee Schedule standards by 2024. The 2023 and 2024 fee schedules will be soon available on IMAASource’s website. Presenters should always follow the spirit of the Guiding Principles in implementing a transition that is appropriate to their own organization’s situation.
The objective of the 2022 IMAA Fee Schedule is to raise the standards to which the entire independent media arts community should strive, in keeping with its values of fair remuneration for artists. We encourage organizations to use the new Fee Schedule when budgeting for future programming and to refer to it in grant applications.
