30/04/2021: Creative Freelancers: Shaping London’s Recovery is a scheme in which 50 freelancers in the performing arts will collaborate with cultural organisations on how to improve working practice.
UK Music is among the partner organisations for the new initiative. Others include Battersea Arts Centre, Young Vic Theatre, Little Angel Theatre, Barbican, English Touring Opera, Roundhouse and more.
Since March 2020, up to 60% of the London’s freelancers have lost all their income. This scheme is designed to improve future working conditions as well as provide employment now.
The £325,000 programme has announced four freelance recruits who will facilitate the scheme, a panel of advisors and a list of partner organisations.
This group will issue a call out on 5 May to recruit 50 freelancers who will form the cohort which will undertake the project over the next 6 months.
