Artists Union of England / 5 June 2016

I have recently been elected to the Executive of the Artists Union of England. 

There has never been a time more relevant for unions or when thay have been needed as much as today in the face of pernicious austerity and dogmatic cuts that benefit the rich and leave the poor to get poorer. As Disabled Artists we are doubly dammed in the current econmic climate.

Artists’ Union England is a new trade union for professional visual and applied artists. Unlike other cultural professionals, artists have had no collective voice in the form of a trade union, to represent them at work and to lobby and advocate on their behalf.

As a trade union, run by volunteers, we aim to represent artists at strategic decision-making levels and positively influence the value and role artists play within society.
