It is a particularly uncertain time as we continue to understand the long-term effects of the pandemic on our lives, and the impact of Brexit on how we live and work. The #ArtIsEssential campaign has been set up to unite us as one voice. As a sector, we need to come together to be visible throughout 2021 and the run-up to the Government Comprehensive Spending Review.
Whether you are an artist, arts freelancer, arts educator, arts professional, venue, organisation, network or anyone in between – you can make a difference by being part of this campaign. Let us unite to influence policy and decision-makers to do the right thing by our sector.
#ArtIsEssential Digital March
The Contemporary Visual Arts Network invite you to take part in a Digital March on 10 June to let the government know that #ArtIsEssential.
