The EU referendum is set for 23 June 2016.
Our economy is stronger and better off in Europe – and that includes Britain’s arts sector. Being in the European market opens up opportunities for our creative industries, while EU funding nourishes and protects innovation in this country. And these benefits are only likely to increase in future.
Working in partnership with The NewBridge Project in Newcastle, key figures from the debate have been invited to offer the creative comunity of the North East facts. We will be discussing what the issues are, how staying/leaving will affect artists, the cultural sector and the UK as well as exploring creative approaches and actions we can take to support the campaign.
Contributions from: Jessie Jacobs (Britain Stronger In Europe Campaign), Carole Tongue (Creatives 4 Europe and UK Coalition for Cultural Diversity), Matt Watson (North East Labour MEPs Office) and Clymene Christoforou (ISIS Arts and Culture Action Europe)
