Frequently Asked Questions
I'm having issues sending my application, what should I do?
Make sure you have filled in all fields marked with an asterisk (*). If you still have issues sending your application form, try another browser and check your internet connection. If you still have problems, please feel free to contact us at any time (firstname.lastname@example.org).
What happens after I have sent my application?

What is the application process?
After submitting the application, you will go through the following steps with us: If you are successful, we will ask you to answer some short video questions, in which you briefly introduce yourself. We will invite you to an online interview for the third round of the process, and to come an experience an ArtNight for yourself and meeting one our existing artists, after which, we will offer you the freelancer contract. 🙂
I can't find my ArtNight city in the list, can I still apply?
If your city does not appear on ArtNight’s list, it is likely that we won’t be opening it as an ArtNight city for the time being. But maybe there is an alternative city nearby that is on our list and would be possible for you? Then we would be very open to receiving an application from you. If this is not the case, please check our website regularly for updates. There is still always a chance that your city could be represented by ArtNight in the near future. If you want to send a more general application so we can keep you in mind for the future, please visit: https://www.artnight.co.uk/become-an-artist/ and apply there.
What would my employment status be?
Our artists are employed on a freelancer. You can choose when, where and how you offer your ArtNights. ArtNight cannot be your main occupation. This means that you will invoice us and we will transfer the invoice amount to you monthly. You must clarify questions, relating to social security, your exact employment status and tax-law, by yourself as this depends on your other work and personal situation.
How much can I earn at ArtNight?
You will receive up to £190 , for a standard ArtNight event.
Which materials are used and do I have to pay for them?
For a standard ArtNight, artists work with acrylic on canvas (30x40cm) with flat brushes. We receive our high-quality materials from our partner ‘Marabu’.
You won’t have to pay for the material, we will always deliver everything you need for your ArtNights, completely free of charge. Only at the beginning of your ArtNight career, you will need to pay us a one-time deposit of £150 for the equipment, which will be returned to you after the end of your time with ArtNight.
What is the reason I need room for approx. 6 moving boxes?
Our ArtNight starter set consists of all the materials you will need for your ArtNights – everything is included (eg. brushes, paints, aprons, easels, canvases etc.). So that you don’t have to order new material from us after every ArtNight, you will receive a larger starter set at the beginning and then you can always order new material, if necessary. All in all, this takes up space of approx. 6 moving boxes.
Who chooses the motifs for the ArtNight?
For your own public ArtNights, you can choose motifs from a range of our own motif selection. You can also submit suggestions yourself. If we accept your suggestion, your motif will be included in our European-wide catalogue and will be offered to other ArtNight artists to offer in their cities all over Europe!
Who is responsible for handling venues?
The location search and communication with the venue is fully the responsiblity of our ArtNight artists. You decide when and where you would like your ArtNights should take place. We will support you on your independent search with helpful coaching and marketing materials, with which many artists have already been able to use to secure locations for themselves.
Who handles the costs, involved with the venue?
For our ArtNight artists, there should be no costs involved for the location. This is because, through your ArtNight, you will essentially be giving the location free marketing, filling up their empty capacity and increasing their turnover. If your desired location insists on a room rental, then you need to find another location.
How many ArtNights can I organise per month?
You can decide for yourself the date, time and how many ArtNights you want to take place. Our active artists may organise, on average, four to seven ArtNights per week.
At what times can the ArtNight take place?
ArtNights during the week should take place from 5pm onwards. On weekends, they could start in the early afternoon.
Do I need a car to become an ArtNight artist?
No, a car is not necessary. The materials can be transported by public transport, as an alternative option.
Do I get transport reimbursements?
No, unfortunately we cannot reimburse you for your journey or parking costs incurred.
What is the difference between a public and private ArtNight?
Public ArtNights are events, in which customers can buy available tickets, and dates as well as start-times are determined by the artist. Private ArtNights are closed events in which, groups can book directly with us with their desired date, place and motifs (eg. office parties, hen-parties, birthdays etc.). We will then look for an artist to take over this event.
Will I also get to know the other ArtNight artists?
Of course! One of our main passions is to support artists and connect them with other artists. Once you join the team you will be introduced to the other artists in your local area and across the UK – an instant community of like-minded creative folk! We have regular meetups and encourage you to get to know one another. You will also have regular contact with the UK and artist management team from our head office in Berlin. We also organise an amazing ArtNight Festival once a year so you can meet your international colleagues. We usually meet for a weekend in a city, in an event location booked by us. Along with good food and drinks, it’s really the ideal opportunity to get to know each other even better, to exchange ideas and learn from each other.
What happens after I sign my contract?
After you have signed a contract with us, you will get your personal access to the ‘ArtNight Academy’. Here, you will find many online courses with videos and texts, to help you get started at ArtNight. You will also take part in two webinars, which each last for a duration of one hour. In these webinars, you will learn about our concept, our digital infrastructure, along with tips and tricks for your very own ArtNights. Additionally, you will be connected to your colleagues within your city and the UK. This way, you will learn the ins and outs of an ArtNight from an experienced artist and exchange ideas with the local community.
