Fair Share for Artists: New Government, renewed campaign

    With a new UK Government in place and Brexit on the way, we’re calling on you to join our campaign for greater recognition of artists’ rights and livelihoods. Here's how you can get involved.

    Looking ahead to 2020

    Thank you to everyone who has supported the Fair Share for Artists campaign in 2019. We’ve built an impressive supporter base but, with a new government settling in, our work has just begun.
     
    The new Government must understand the importance of artists’ livelihoods and rights. In 2020 we will campaign to promote the importance of artists to our creative economy, and lobby for artists’ rights to remain secure following Brexit.
     

    We need everyone’s help to spread the word!

     
    Share facts and figures on social media – most people don’t know that the average income for an artist is £5,000? Make sure you use the hashtag #FairShareforArtists and tag your MP.


    Sign up as a supporter – show artists that you care if they get royalties and get paid! We must show the Government that we have the backing of the entire art world.


    Write to your MP – anyone can do it and it’s perfect timing now that new MPs are arriving. Get in touch via communications@dacs.org.uk if you have any questions or need any help.

    Are you an artist?

     
    Say it on social – post a short video to Instagram or Twitter saying why artists rights are so important. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #FairShareforArtists and tag your MP


    Lobby with us – nothing brings the issues to life like hearing straight from artists. If you are able to join us in Parliament to lobby MPs please let us know via communications@dacs.org.uk.

    Hear it from the artists
