Brexit and Heritage: Prospect’s position

Key issues

  • Impact on staffing of restrictions on movement/ability to work
  • Potential negative impact on art/object loans in/out and international collaboration
  • Potential negative impact on funding through loss of European-based grants

What we are doing

  • We are using our Brexit Heritage survey in industry-specific campaigning
  • We are supporting the wider Prospect campaign on reciprocal rights
  • We are currently developing a plan to reprise the very successful “Heritage in A Cold Climate” campaign

Reasons to join Prospect
