ISM announces partnership with Musicians Movement8:44, 7th October 2020
The ISM has announced a new campaign partnership with the Musicians Movement, and a new slogan, #MakeMusicWork, to ensure musicians can start earning again.
Together, the organisations are fighting for:
- A new Freelance Performers Support Scheme to help musicians return to live performances in Covid-secure spaces
- Changes to the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme to provide a tailored safety net for musicians who cannot work while venues remain closed due to government safety restrictions
The new partnership began with a joint letter to Chanellor Rishi Sunak following his speech at the Conservative Party Conference and the government’s ‘Winter Economy Plan’.
The letter to the Chancellor can be found here.
