Behind the Stage

“Behind the Stage” is an innovative project aimed at empowering the role and capacity of employers associations and strengthening social dialogue in the European live performance sector. The project seeks to improve industrial relations in the EU live performance sector by strengthening the capacities and improving the functioning of national employers organisations in a rapidly changing working environment. In order to achieve results throughout 2018 and 2019 Pearle* will undertake a series of activities that make up the core of the project. • Capacity building meetings will take place in Tallinn, Estonia (May 2018); Antwerp, Belgium (November 2018); Sofia/Plovdiv, Bulgaria (May 2019) and Porto, Portugal (November 2019). Composed of three parts: Academy, thematic seminars and workshops, these activities will undertake training for representatives of employers associations and management in the live performance sector in order to strengthen their knowledge and therefore their capacity, as well as providing them with the opportunity to develop and exchange experiences and best practices. • On 22nd November 2018 the Pearle*-Live Performance Europe Awards will take place in a ceremony held at the Bozar Centre for Fine Arts in Brussels. The high level event is designed to highlight the role of employers associations that normally undertake their activities ‘behind the stage’, and will reward good practices undertaken by associations in categories as: Diversity & Equal Opportunities, Cooperation, Social Dialogue/Collective Bargaining, Sustainable Development, Skills/Training/ Lifelong Learning and a special award for an individual organisation’s outstanding achievement in Cultural Heritage. The Awards serve as a source for inspiration for other associations and and make visible the associations in their own respective countries as well as internationally. • Throughout the duration of the project the Capacity building meetings and the Pearle*-Live Performance Europe Awards will be accompanied by an awareness raising campaign through communication, dissemination and information to Pearle* members as well as to other target groups, with the aim of making social dialogue better known in the sector and the wider public. • The Project will be brought to a close with a forward looking roadmap indicating possible options for employers to strengthen cooperation, social dialogue and their capacities in their respective countries. The project receives the financial support of the European Union.

visas procedures for artists and cultural professionals to be improved

In response to the Commission consultation on the modernisation of EU visa Schengen policy, Pearle calls to improve the visa procedures so that third country national artists and cultural professionals can travel more easily to and in-out the Schengen zone. in Pearle’s view a general and harmonized approach for legitimate third-country national travelers has to be the basis in order to provide transparency and clear rules. However, the EU can also respond to the specific needs of sectors, such as it has done to accommodate needs by employers for highly qualified or for seasonal work, or in the case of research and education purposed, and in the context of the visa code for seafarers or in the case of Olympic games.
