Reactions on the EU referendum
news
04/07/16

Following the results of the recent European Union referendum, Creative Edinburgh wish to signpost members to reactions from a selection of our peers and relevant cultural organisations. Whilst the full repercussions of the decision have yet to be made clear, we hope the following comments will instil in our members a sense of belief in the creative community and our ties to the connected world.

Creative Europe Desk UK "Following the EU referendum result there are no immediate material changes to the current arrangements for those who have successfully applied, are currently being assessed, or are planning to apply for Creative Europe funding in 2016 and 2017."

Arts Professional "The Creative Industries Federation (CIF) and the National Campaign for the Arts (NCA) have pledged to support and safeguard the arts sector as the UK negotiates its exit from the European Union."

British Council "We believe that given the result of the United Kingdom’s referendum on EU membership, the cultural connection between the UK and other European nations will remain vital, and can help to build confidence and trust in whatever political and economic settlement is finally reached."

Creative Scotland "Arts and culture transcend borders and bring people together from across the globe. We will continue to do everything we can to support our vibrant arts, screen and creative industries to make and sustain fruitful, positive international relationships across Europe and beyond."

Fashion industry “Brexit, and the turmoil in financial markets, is likely to have negative repercussions. Consumers may pause before spending, and businesses may pause before committing to capital investments.”

Creative Review "Aside from the immediate economic impact, we’re now faced with an ugly reality that tens of thousands of talented people may leave the UK, and a future generation of talent may never arrive in the first place."
