Performers and performers’ rights: How can we create a sustainable creative eco-system in Europe?

An online event brought to you by AEPO-ARTIS.

Performers are the backbone of Europe’s rich cultural and creative sector. However, the current COVID-19 pandemic reminds us just how fragile the creative ecosystem is, with many performers forced to consider giving up their profession as their art can no longer support them. Now more than ever, it is crucial that we strengthen the legal framework protecting performers.

Member States must now implement the 2019 EU Copyright Directive and in particular its article 18, which guarantees performers appropriate and proportionate remuneration – especially from streaming.

This webinar, brought to you by AEPO-ARTIS, will look at how this can be achieved.
