SCAN statement on prorogation of Parliament and No Deal Brexit
Boris Johnson’s move to suspend the UK Parliament has brought the prospect of a No Deal Brexit closer.
We know that the visual art community in Scotland is extremely concerned about the effects of Brexit on their work, family and future plans.
Our Brexit survey – carried out in October 2018 in partnership with the Federation of Scottish Theatres – showed that more than a quarter of artists and art workers were considering leaving Scotland because of Brexit. The survey also showed that nearly three quarters of foreign, Scottish-based artworkers were considering abandoning the country. At that point, only 5% had applied for UK citizenship with a third considering applying.
We firmly believe that our members have nothing to gain from a cliff-edge exit from the EU. Contemporary visual art thrives on open dialogue, free movement and shared ideas; all of which are at risk in the hostile environment that a No Deal Brexit Britain presents.
