FIA FIM Manifesto on Status of the Artist

This Manifesto on the Status of the Artist is the outcome of cooperation between the International Federation of Actors (FIA) and the International Federation of Musicians (FIM). A joint working group drawn from the membership of the two federations has been coming together on this issue over the past two years, in order to share experience and concerns. The decision was taken to produce a joint document bringing together the main problems in relation to the status of the artist identified by the membership of the two federations and the chief political demands for action to address some of the most difficult and intractable issues.
