News - Publishing Wednesday, 23 January 2019

Detailed advice provides relevant information to help arts and cultural organisations prepare for the event of no deal exit from EU

Arts Council England has published a guide sign-posting relevant Government information that will help arts and cultural organisations prepare in the event that the UK exits from the European Union without a withdrawal agreement.

The guide includes Government notices and policy papers, including: EU funding for projects under EU programmes such as Creative Europe, European Regional Development Fund and Horizon 2020, amongst others; government policy on EU citizens' rights in the UK for organisations employing EU nationals travelling to the EU post Brexit for those planning tours and other trips; implications on the movement of goods for those who are moving works of art or instruments and
equipment across borders; and the likely effects on copyright and intellectual property rights.

Laura Dyer, deputy chief executive, Places & Engagement, Arts Council England, said: "It is important arts and cultural organisations are prepared for the possibility of a no deal scenario. As the development body for the arts, museums and libraries we want to do all we can to help them do that. This guide puts all the current relevant Government advice in one place and explains which might be relevant for different organisations. I hope it will help organisations decide what actions to take in preparation for a no deal outcome."
