During this troubling time of the Covid-19 pandemic, when many businesses are furloughing staff and may not hire them back after the lockdown, when freelance work has dried up, when studio managements have inconsistently responded to artists with anything from deferred rent payment to substantial discounts, now is the time to join a TRADE UNION specifically there to support visual and socially engaged artists.

In addition to benefits such as PPL insurance, and bespoke guidance on copyright and tax matters, you will be involved with like-minded people throughout England who are fighting for substantial improvement to the working conditions for its members.


The union continues to grow and we thank you for your continued support.
