Mediation in contemporary art centres
This brochure is the result of collaborative working for several months with mediators from various art centres in the network. It was published in 2019 by DCA to highlight the specific nature of the mediation work carried out for the public in contemporary art centres.
This brochure was produced as an institutional communication tool for partners and professionals in the field, to explain the dimension of mediation in art centres and to highlight the power and the integration of these professions within the structures.

Remuneration scale — recommended minimums
The remuneration scale, presented as an appendix to the charter of good practices published by DCA in 2019, aims to define minimums corresponding to the different types of activities and contributions made by artists in contemporary art centres. The result of a study conducted over several months among the members of the network, this scale aims to guarantee artists a minimum remuneration in line with the social responsibility of contemporary art centres towards artists.
During 2022-2023, an internal DCA working group is working on an update of the pay scale published by DCA in 2019.
Charter of good practices for contemporary art centres
Adopted in 2019, the charter of good practices engages each contemporary art centre member of the DCA network to work towards the creation, production and dissemination of the visual arts by respecting a general framework that involves:
— professional support and minimum remuneration for artists;
— respect for an ethic of care and recognition of the specific nature of the professions;
— the role of contemporary art centres in the development of artistic and cultural education and cultural rights;
— respect for diversity;
— the environmental responsibility of contemporary art centres;
— inclusion in the dynamics of cooperation.
