The date for the UK’s departure from the European Union – Brexit – has been agreed as 31 January 2020. What does this mean for UK citizens?
Here is a round-up from The Guardian. As a UK citizen, you will still be able to apply for arts funding through the EU’s Creative Europe funding stream, go on an Erasmus study programme and travel visa-free up to at least the end of December 2020.
However, the impact of Brexit on working musicians from the UK is starting to bite. Some European organisations require new employment applicants to be EU citizens, pushing UK applicants down the pecking order, and there are fears for additional costs of future working visits and tours.
