The corona pandemic is creating unique challenges and existential worries for Europe's creative professionals. In order to support creative people in this exceptional situation, AEPO-ARTIS, the umbrella organisation of European collecting societies for performing artists, has joined the "SaveEUculture" campaign.
To provide tangible financial relief for freelance or short-term employed performers who have got into economic difficulties, GVL has decided to pay an advance to affected performers. In order to receive it, rightsholders are requested to submit an application forthe corona relief by 30 April 2020.
GVL has adopted an additional type of short-term assistance: Advance payments to GVL producers of sound recordings were launched today. At the same time, we are working at full speed on advance payments for performers.
