DACS welcomes new Board Directors

    DACS is delighted to announce that Jane Wilson, Mary Moore and Sarah Taylor Silverwood will be joining our Board of Directors. This follows our commitment to increase the representation of artists and estates on our Board. 

    Artists at the heart of DACS’ decision-making

    The new Board Directors were voted in by members of DACS at our recent Annual General Meeting (AGM) on 3 September – our first in 10 years.
    Together, they represent the interests of our Copyright Licensing, Artist’s Resale Right and Payback membership.

    Their appointment will bring the number of Board Directors up to 12. It will mean half of the Board are artists and estates, ensuring artists are at the heart of our decision-making process.
