FreeMoveCreate has today (Thursday 22 March) unveiled its new website.
The refreshed website hosts the campaign petition where visitors can sign up to support the campaign. It also includes a range of campaign resources for supporters to use, a news section, campaign videos, testimonials and more.
The Incorporated Society of Musicians and a-n The Artists Information Company launched FreeMoveCreate to ensure flexible travel for all those who work in the creative industries post-Brexit.
The campaign represents the coming together of more than 30,000 artists and musicians from across the memberships of both organisations.
Deborah Annetts, Chief Executive, Incorporated Society of Musicians said:
‘The creative industries are the UK’s fastest growing sector, worth £92 billion a year to the economy. We want to play our part in the UK’s future prosperity and flexible travel is vital to ensure this success. Flexible travel must be protected post-Brexit so our artists can carry out their work and delight audiences across the EU.
‘50% of creatives are self-employed and often get offered work in the EU at 24 hours’ notice, sometimes traveling to the EU to work more than 40 times a year. To do this, flexible travel is crucial for creatives as multi-page visa documents and tax forms are not compatible with the nature of their short-notice, freelance work.
‘We are pleased to launch the FreeMoveCreate website and we urge everyone who cares about the future of creativity to sign up to FreeMoveCreate at freemovecreate.org.’
