Subject: RE: Brexit and music
I have no idea whether it was the same in Britain, but in Ireland there was a European financial input into the arts which we were able to take advantage of on two occasions in order to make available our Traveller collection
I think the publication of Tom Munnely's Essays, 'The Singing Will Never Be Done', may have benefitted from that assistance.
This is how it works, according to Irish Arts Council literature
"Creative Europe Programme 2013 sees the launch of the new Creative Europe Programme, a continued commitment by the European Union to fund the creative and cultural sectors. Creative Europe will last for seven years from 2014 - 2020. The Creative Europe Programme will seek to help artists develop international careers and to foster international networks to create professional opportunities"
Without assistance such as this the Traditional Music Sene would not have been as healthy as it is
