Money – 3rd April at 3-4pm
This tea break session will take ‘money’ – especially in respect of the current critis as it’s theme. We want to continue to review our take and experience of the situation as things emerge and land.
We would like to continue sharing our thoughts on money – what financial support is on offer from the Government and Arts Council England and what this looks like for you, your projects, commissioners, clients and public.
On Friday a member mentioned that to work part-time as a tutor for a Leeds-based university, they are required to take employee status which, when taken as a percentage of their income, could exclude them from accessing other HMRC/Government freelance support. Not great.
Are there any other glitches in the system that are having a direct effect on what moneys you can access or not. And also what could be better.
There are also a number of surveys being drafted that seek to demonstrate short and long term impact of the lock-down on the arts and creative sectors. We could explore some of these research questions to work out whether they could capture our experience as artists. Or will they capture institutional impact only?
Louise Atkinson and Sue Ball will be hosting the tea break with cuppa in hand and hoping to chat with you as timebank members.
