Starving Artist - art, money, freelancing, and how to live creatively

Honor Eastly

Starving Artist is a podcast about art, money, and how to combine those things. If you’re a creative who’s ever wondered “how the hell do I make this work?!” then this podcast is for you. The show is basically an excuse for host and honesty enthusiast Honor Eastly to ask successful artists really nosy questions about their financial situation, and record the conversation. This is a no-holds-barred exploration of the reality behind the Starving Artist myth, and season one features 12 interviews with some of Australia's most incisive young artists including Frances Cannon, Becky Sui Zhen, Abbey Rich, Wendy Syfret (i-D / VICE) and Steve Roggenbuck. The podcast takes us behind the curtain and into the machine room of contemporary artists, taking on everything from how to make a living from Instagram, how to negotiate a raise in the arts, to how to get out of your private freelancer tax shame.
