Call to support the cultural relations between the US and EU

On the occasion of the EU-US summit taking place in Brussels on June 15th, where the american president Joe Biden meets the representatives of the EU institutions, Live DMA with 107 other cultural associations signed a joint letter.

This letter was drafted by Pearle, the European association for music, performing arts and live performance organisations, and colleagues from the US. It aims to take advantage of the event to draw attention to visa and work permit issues that are encountered when traveling to US or on the contrary to Europe. Together, we call on the US and EU to reinforce the cultural relations to facilitate the travel conditions for artists and cultural professionals.
