ABCD plan for cultural recovery in Brighton & Hove: creative worker income guarantee research project. Final report

posted on 2023-06-10, 06:40 authored by Laura Caldow, Kate O'Riordan, BOP Consulting
Overview Universal Basic Income (UBI) initiatives have been given greater policy attention and emphasis since the Covid-19 pandemic, and a range of schemes have been introduced that are designed to support workers in the Cultural and Creative Industries at both city and national level. BOP Consulting was appointed to explore this context and outline a pilot for a Creative Worker Income Guarantee (CWIG) focusing on Brighton & Hove, working on behalf of the University of Sussex and the ABCD Cultural Recovery Programme. To achieve this, this study includes detailed assessment of three international case studies, engagement with the local sector and key national and local stakeholders, as well as financial planning to understand the quantum of these schemes. These proposals are illustrative rather than definite.
