Call to Action to the UK Home Office

 

In response to the UK’s future skills-based immigration system, Scotland’s culture sector came together and produced eight clear recommendations for the Home Office. The recommendations refer to both the current and proposed immigration systems and are outlined with a view to minimising industry damage to the cultural economy as a result of Brexit. We hope they are taken forward as a matter of urgency.

The UK’s creative industries are a global success story, and the contribution of the culture sector in stimulating flows of talent, ideas and investment between market and non-market segments of our creative ecosystem must not be underestimated.

Culture Counts have submitted the ‘8 Recommendations’ to the UK Home Office. We have also written a letter on our immigration policy positions to Secretary of State; Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Jeremy Wright MP.
