Common Income

Common Income is a research project about the possibility to share income between (not only) artists and cultural workers in Flanders.

How can a collective capital create more financial security for individuals within and even outside the arts? We share inspiring practices and will develop an experiment ourselves.

Common Income is supported by A Fair New World ?!.

Part of the research work is mapping (and also interviewing) other inspiring practices in which individuals share income to create more social security for each other. These projects embrace values like solidarity, collectivity and/or social cohesion. Maybe they also can inspire you? If you know other practices that we should look into, please email us!
