For the first time in over five years, the MIA has secured a 1-2-1 meeting with the UK Government. Following his letter to the Secretary of State for Business, the MIA’s new Board Chair, Steven Greenall, and Executive Director, Anthony Short, will meet next month with UK Business Minister, Paul Scully MP and his team to discuss the issues directly affecting the UK’s music industry.
Make your voice heard – fill in our survey by this Friday.
To help present the Minister insights into the real and current challenges being faced by our industry, we are asking MI businesses to complete this confidential Covid Impact Business Survey.
These insights will provide vital supporting evidence into the issues which matter – it is open for any music industry business to complete until Friday, 5th February. The survey also provides an opportunity for you to recommend solutions for government to consider.
Music Education & Music Business Survey
Music Services and other Music Education Hub Partner organisations can also help.
UK Music businesses contribute hundreds of millions of pounds into the UK economy through Tax, PAYE, VAT collection, business rates, etc as well as directly employing tens of thousands of people. There is an inextricable link between music education funding and the music industry and the MIA wants to highlight the benefits to Government that funding the arts and music education has on music businesses, as well as the benefits to music educators, students and society as a whole.
We intend to show that the money Government provides directly or indirectly to Music Education Organisations across the UK from National Government, Devolved Assemblies, the Arts Councils, Local Government, etc and elsewhere is directly benefitting business as well as the wider benefits of music-making. Music businesses are made up of people who are equally passionate, dedicated and committed to a thriving music education landscape across the UK.
