We use surveys to inform campaigns and the issues that concern professional musicians.

We currently have one survey open:

Be part of the post-Brexit negotiations

The ISM has recently launched a first-of-its kind survey. The survey has been commissioned in order to gather crucial evidence so musicians have a chance to shape the Government’s future trade negotiations between the UK, the EU, and other countries.

In addition to capturing further data on the impact of Brexit on working in the EU, musicians are being asked about the realities of travelling and working in non-EU countries, in particular the USA, Japan, China and India, looking at everything from mobility and visas, to the movement of instruments and equipment, tax, social security and healthcare. This will help the ISM's researchers to be able to predict what travelling to the EU will look like for UK-based musicians if the UK ends up occupying third country status following the end of the transition period.

If you are a practicing musician, please consider completing the survey.
