The UK performing arts view on Brexit
Majority of performing arts opinions leaders are Worried about Brexit: 'A huge step backwards for creatives'
The prospect of leaving the EU has been variously described as a “nightmare”, “artistic isolation” and a “huge creative step backwards” by arts leaders surveyed by the Media.
The vast majority of figures contacted from a Gardian Journalists team, and many more responding to a Guardian appeal, said they were against the UK leaving the union for both practical and emotional reasons.
Many voiced fears about barriers to the free movement of labour and the loss of access to EU arts funding.
Alistair Spalding, chief executive of Sadler’s Wells theatre in London, one of the UK’s most internationally diverse venues, said he could not think of a single advantage to leaving, but foresaw many problems.
"There is the nightmare of visa and work permit applications that we have to do. It is less complex for countries in the EU but that would all be thrown up in the air… we would have to bring in more staff to deal with it... Honestly, I don’t think people really understand what a nightmare it is. Leaving Europe, for our business, it’s bad".

FAREWELL FABRICE !
Fabrice Froger, Open Street administrator, left us.
There are persons who live own work and passions with the aim to fulfill themselves.
Then, there are persons who find own self-accomplishment in directing own work towards the others, in sharing own passions, in constructing bridges between cultures, in defending art and its surprising diversity.
Fabrice belonged to this second category.
And now, in the moment when he passed away, we want to remember him in this way.
We are sure that we have lost an irreplaceable human patrimony, and also, a dear friend.
Farewell Fabrice, your work and your humanity will be forever a source of inspiration for all of us.

The meeting place for live performances buyers and sellers !!
UPLOAD your productions and highlight them in OPEN STREET TUBE, to propose them on festivals across Europe.
TAKE PART in periodical International Showcase, in order to test ONLINE the interest of operators in your artistic proposals.
To OPEN the city gates to performing arts means to bring out the value of open air spaces assigned to social life, to enforce the cohesion inside communities, to improve the local tourist activity, to create new routes for exchange and integration between European countries.
The creation of a international debate, the comparisons between
normative and laws, different urban patterns and policies for development
and support of performing arts, will drive to a new consciousness and
will produce new stimulus in administrators and art operators. This
route could not be undertaken on a simple regional or local level.
Our country, now, is Europe!
