Visas and immigration post-Brexit and the creative industries: making sure the sector continues to thrive once the UK has left the EU

24 January 2018

As part of our All Party Parliamentary Group for Video games we are co-hosting an afternoon reception in the House of Commons to discuss the issues surrounding Brexit, Visas and Immigration. 

The ability of creative businesses to attract world talent is a key issue for the sector and highlighted by our State of Play report. As trade talks with the EU are moving forward, the aim of this event is to hear from creative businesses and workers about their concerns and priorities, and to highlight what they need from negotiations, especially in relation to the mobility of talent post-Brexit.

That so many arts/culture APPGs are coming together on ensuring mobility of talent post-Brexit, highlights the level of consensus within the sector on what is needed, and importance the sector places on getting this issue right in negotiations. 

This event is being co-hosted by the following arts/creative industries All-Party Parliamentary Groups with whom we share a great deal in common: Performers’ Alliance; Art, Craft & Design; Dance; Music; Music Education; Design & Innovation; and Teaching Profession.

Further information to follow in the New Year.

Due to our limited number of spaces, this event is invite only. However if you are particularly interested in being kept up to date on the progress of this event or in events like this, please email tim@ukie.org.uk
