HVB motion carried at ARC
23 May 2014
Following the rather London Centric report in The Stage, here is the full text of the Motion as carried. the tautologous 'in more public spaces throughout the UK' was a Council ammendment that had to be accepted to get the Motion through. Although this highlights the UK, it was in the European context that the motion was proposed as many young performers want to use street performance as a way of travelling throughout Europe to extend their experience and performance skills.
MOTION 42: Humberside Variety Branch (as amended)
This Annual Representative Conference calls on the Equity Council to campaign for the
rights of street performers (buskers) to work throughout the UK and Europe in accordance
with Article 10 of the Convention of Human Rights (Freedom of Expression) in more public
spaces throughout the UK.
