A Post-Brexit Arts World
Monday 18 January 2021, 19:00 GMT

Join our next So You Wanna Work in the Arts webinar: ‘A Post-Brexit Arts World, bringing together panellists from across Europe to discuss the future of the arts industry post-Brexit. 

Britain has now left the EU, resulting in a range of potential repercussions for the arts industry and its international network. Our panel will explore what has changed for the arts, which sectors of the industry may be most affected by the changes and resulting uncertainty, and how we can overcome the challenges to create positive outcomes from Brexit.
