Webinar: Brexit Killing Culture?

The Brexit is no good news for the Cultural and Creative Sectors in both the EU and the UK. The UK will no longer participate in Europe’s major Creative Europe programme. Apart from this, intercultural exchange between the EU and the UK will become more difficult. How will touring bands and other mobile performers be affected? What does the Brexit mean for UK artists coming to the EU – and vice versa?

During this webinar, organized by Niklas NIENASS, Member of the European Parliament (Greens/EFA), and Magid MAGID, activist, author and former MEP (Green Party) we will discuss those questions with: 

  • Anita DEBAERE, Director, Pearle* – Live Performance Europe, Brussels, Belgium
  • Julia FRANK, Senior Executive Manager Touring, Wizard Promotions, Frankfurt am Main, Germany
  • Tom KIEHL, Deputy CEO and Director of Public Affairs, UK Music, London, UK
  • Nick McDOWELL, Director International Arts Council England, London, UK

Join our interactive Webinar on Tuesday, 02 February 2020 at 19.30 CET/18.30 GMT and shape the discussion with your own questions!
