SARP releases final report

By Naomi Brand

The Senior Artists Research Project (SARP) released its final report and recommendations for action, which found that senior artists are at risk.

Some of the SARP findings include:
• 61 per cent of senior artists are at moderate or high financial risk;
• 73 per cent are at moderate or high health risk; and
• 42 per cent are at moderate or high risk with regards to their artistic career or legacy.
The SARP Steering Committee determined that a new organization should be formed to provide needed programs and services.

Initiated in 2006 by a small group of arts organizations, SARP has developed into a three-year research project involving all the major arts organizations in Canada. The project investigated the circumstance, needs and interests of Canadian senior artists. For full report see:
