The European Commission and stakeholders have published a new study that sheds light on the status and working conditions of artists, cultural and creative professionals.
The study looks at characteristics of employment of artists and cultural and creative professionals in EU Member States with regards to artist status and entitlements, social security, self-employment, support ecosystems and alternative financing, artistic freedom, career development and measures countering the Covid crisis.
In the late summer of 2020, IAA Europe starts a series of online debates to bring members and supporters closer together, to discuss what can be the role of artists associations today and especially their (re)union on an international level.

3000 cultural professionals, artists, creators, authors stand behind Culture Action Europe’ petition, which you can sign here.
These voices make it clear: „There is no proper recovery without culture and no culture without proper budget.“
