The Art of the Hustle

Discover what it takes to make it in the arts. Inspired by generations of artists who have taken on commercial work to fund their passion projects, we take a practical look at the realities of earning a living as a young creative today. We explore the rise of slasher culture and ask how artists balance priorities; from personal branding, to self-care. 

The podcast is presented by DJ and producer Martha Pazienti Caidan. Featuring Jide Adetunji and Ibrahim Kamara founders of GUAP video magazine, DJ and mentor Gavin D, artists Georgina Johnson and Ellie Pennick, poet Teige Maddison and illustrator Sinead McGeechan.

The Art of the Hustle is a Falling Tree production for Tate, produced by Hannah Dean and Alia Cassam, executive produced by Sam McGuire.
