League of Culture is proud to support these campaigns:
|FreeMoveCreate aims to encourage the UK and EU to keep Freedom of Movement after Brexit, thereby not limiting travel for artists across the region.|
|Bacc for the Future aims to reform the EBacc so that arts subjects are included.|
|The JUST A CARD campaign aims to get people to purchase from independent makers and galleries. Even buying ‘just a card’ will help keep this vital source of creativity going.|
|Visual artists in the UK are regularly expected to develop and exhibit their work without a fee. We don’t think this is right.
The Paying Artists campaign aims to secure payment for artists who exhibit in publicly-funded galleries.We believe paying artists for the work they do will mean that, in years to come, we’ll still be able to access quality art which reflects the broadest possible spectrum of human experience.Sign up to the campaign here
|English PEN and The Howard League for Penal Reform ran a campaign to reverse the Government’s decision to ban prisoners from receiving books.
In July 2015, Secretary of State for Justice, Michael Gove repealed the ban.
