Screenwriters throughout Europe have joined like-minded organisations in the cultural and creative sectors to form a coalition: Creativity Works!
Its objective is to kick-start an open and informed dialogue with EU policymakers about the economic and cultural contribution made by creators and the cultural and creative sectors in the digital age.
WGGB is part of this effort through its affiliation to the Federation of Screenwriters in Europe and supports the key aims of Creativity Works! including:
- Intellectual property rights sustain not only well-known creators but also help support many less well-known artists and promote cultural diversity.
- Freedom of expression secures a creator’s ability to produce content that challenges, informs and entertains without fear of censorship and prosecution, thereby contributing to democratic debate and society.
- We are committed to explaining how our sectors really operate, how many lives they touch and how everyone will lose out if we are forced to create only “free” content which provides no reward and therefore no incentive to its creator.
