ACE has also issued guidance for organisations and individual practitioners who are planning, preparing or presenting work in England which involves companies or individuals from Russia or Belarus. It is also intended for those cultural organisations and individual practitioners who are planning projects in Russia or Belarus.
Artists At Risk
We would like to take this opportunity to draw attention to the work of Artists at Risk which works with artists around the world, including those affected by war and crises such as those in Ukraine and Afghanistan. They focus on helping artists to safety and placing them in welcoming artist communities.
