Work in the creative and cultural industries?
On 6th May 2021, nearly 20 million people will elect their next Metro Mayor.
We must ask these powerful local leaders to stand up for the creative workforce, nurture local talent and invest in culture for all.
How could we have managed without books, music, journalism, TV and radio broadcasts, box sets, films, computer games, or digital streaming during the endless hours of lockdown? And how many of us long to make live performances in our local theatres, concert halls, stadiums and festivals again?
The workforce that will make this possible have had a devastating year, with so many losing their jobs and falling through the gaps in financial support schemes. We’re now witnessing an exodus from creative professions.
That's why Culture Commons, Excluded UK and the FEU have joined together to develop the 'Creative Workforce Pledge’ - a list of 10 things future Metro Mayors need to do to protect the creative and cultural life of their areas and develop a much healthier landscape for the creative workforce too.
Will you join the campaign? Please use our campaign tool to send the ‘Creative Workforce Pledge’ to all the candidates for Metro Mayor in your area and ask them to sign up today!
