Ashrow Talent Management provide professional actors to the East Midlands and the UK
Covid - 19 and the arts...
The global covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on the arts that will be felt long into 2021 – particularly for live entertainment.
Our priority has been to support our existing clients during this time both professionally and mentally and we are immensely proud of the work they have collectively undertaken.
We continued to try and recruit in areas that we feel we needed to strengthen and to support 2020 graduates and recent recruits as best we can (as always).
The biggest challenge facing the industry remains that for the most part entire client lists very suddenly became unemployed and project numbers / cast sizes have yet to fully recover.
As we move through 2021 we hope to see large casts return to all forms of live and recorded entertainment and further ongoing investment into the arts – an industry with a strong record of pound for pound net returns to the exchequer.
We also hope to see agreement reached between the EU and the UK government retaining access to work across the whole of the single market territory without time constrains. We are an industry that relied heavily on free movement of people – something we feel was overlooked and underappreciated during the original referendum campaign and we now frequently see work advertised that can not currently be offered to UK citizens which is a great shame.
Our love and support as always,
Ashrow Talent Management x
