This is a timely distribution of information, as it aligns with recent press publicity that has been given from the letter written by Manick Govinda of ArtsAdmin that was accompanied by many impressive signatories in the Telegraph. Further coverage has continued in the press since. We hope to continue and develop our relationship with AN, VAGA, ArtsAdmin, Visiting Arts and support them in championing this cause to change the visa system introduced to manage migration into the United Kingdom. The current system often prevents visiting artists from entering the UK and we need the Government to understand the detrimental impact this is having on artists and programmers in the arts sector. We also hope to build on the relationship we have started to develop through this work with European Networks such as Culture Action Europe, IAA (International Artists Association) and IGBK (German Visual Arts Network.
We plan to keep you updated on this campaign so register your email on this site and we will keep you abreast of developments.
