Helen Smith, Executive Chair of IMPALA commented: ”This is a call for urgent action. Small businesses, artists and freelance workers all need support. A joined-up approach across Europe is vital. Incentives for future growth are also part of the plan. No one should get left behind.”

Francesca Trainini, Chair of IMPALA and the Task Force added: ”To help achieve an effective safety net, the EU should monitor what is happening at national level. We also need to map the results. Italy is just one example where the music sector is crumbling.”
