Culture Action Europe

“As the voice of culture and the creative sector in Europe, Culture Action Europe welcomes initiatives that give support to artists. We believe that the Paying Artists Campaign can create conditions for artists to be fairly remunerated in order to contribute to society. Today, culture and creativity are evaluated primarily on economic criteria. We need to ensure alternative stories of the (not only economic) value of cultural and creative sectors are told and heard. We also deeply encourage the launch of a national review of the value and impact of the visual arts’ contribution to society and culture in the UK. The evidence that will emerge from this review will undoubtedly contribute to the recognition of arts and culture’s inherent worth, which is so essential in the current European political climate.”
