Whilst we’ve all been looking towards 2021 for various reasons one thing that has been firmly at the front of our minds is Brexit. Now that a deal has been agreed between the UK and Europe, we hope this offers some stability to help us all plan for the future.
We remain committed to supporting UK outdoor artists throughout this transition and wholeheartedly wish to maintain and build on connections with our European colleagues as we learn to navigate this changing landscape.
We are collating a list of emerging resources we hope you find helpful in your own work and practice.
