      The European Creative Industries see sufficient Radio Spectrum as essential to their successful

      The Wider Spectrum Group (WSG) met with Andrus Ansip, the European Commission Vice President for the Digital Single Market, today to urge support for creative producers and distributors of European cultural content in upcoming EU legislation on the UHF frequencies. Commenting on the outcome of the meeting WSG’s Alan March said: “Europe’s creators of content are a global success story that rely heavily on the UHF spectrum. Some of these frequencies have been promised to other sectors [the 700 MHz Band], but European content and associated jobs are at risk without a fair and sustainable transition plan coherent with the introduction of technologies for improved TV experience- some Member States will need until end of 2022 to achieve the transition - and long term guarantee for spectrum below 700MHz”. Europe’s creative industries represent 7% of European GDP and accounts for 14 million jobs. It is a global leader in producing, creating and distributing content in linear and non-linear modes to a variety of devices.

      Visa package responds to the economic and artistic needs of the live performance sector

      Today, at the EP hearing of the LIBE Committee on the visa package proposal, Pearle* made a plea for taking into consideration the specific needs for the live performance sector. The visa package which contains two components, a recast of the visa code and a proposal for a new touring visa, addresses the hindrances and practical problems occurring for artists, touring companies and local organisers alike. The recast visa code includes proposals for improved procedures and facilitated lodging of an application. It also reduces administrative burdens and provides for more clarity and transparency, in particular with regard to multiple entry visas. The newly proposed touring visa addresses a longstanding problem for the live performance sector, providing a solution for visa exempt third country nationals to travel for a longer period than 90 days in the Schengen zone. Being able to tour with international casts in the Schengen and re-enter the Schengen area is crucial to allow planning of tours across Europe.

      25 years ago. VAT problems were at the origin to create Pearle*,

      Today, 25 years ago the first meeting of Pearle was held in Amsterdam. What preceded: November 1990, Rupert Rhymes the Chief Executive of SOLT Society of London theatre (then SWET) and Rudolf Wolfensberger, Chief Executive of the Association of Dutch orchestras (then CNO), meet at an international conference on cultural cooperation in Glasgow, Cultural Capital of Europe at the time. The topic which triggered both gentlemen was VAT which they considered as a hindrance to undertake international artistic collaboration. A half year later, fellows from other performing arts and music associations from France (Syndeac), Germany (DBV), Netherlands (VNT, now NAPK), Sweden (TR, now Svensk Scenkonst) and UK (ABO) meet in Amsterdam to establish Pearle*, a European association bringing together employers associations in the performing arts sector. The main mission of Pearle* is the establishing of a stable environment by supporting sustainability and promotion of the Live performance across Europe. The group realised that they had common interest on a wide scope of issues and that there was a need to exchange information and take joint action addressing supranational institutions in particular the European Institutions. By the end of 1991 the group had expanded its relations to colleagues from Belgium, Denmark, France, Italy, Finland, Norway, Spain, Switzerland. The first representative from Central-Europe, the Association of Hungarian Orchestras became a member in 1996, quickly followed by Czech Republic, Estonia and Slovakia.

      priorities for the live performance sector for the European Commission term 2014-2019

      (Brussels, 12th February 2015) – Today, Pearle*-Live Performance Europe, presents its priorities, which include a number of general and specific demands for the sector. In the paper Pearle* calls upon the EU to create a true internal market by smart regulation and a framework that gives oxygen to the sector, such as through access to finance, by cutting red tape and lower compliance costs. More specifically, live performance enterprises call attention for 42 concrete measures of importance in 13 key European policy areas. They are to be addressed during the present European Commission term says President of Pearle*, Rolf Bolwin: "We have high expectations of the new European Commission who puts better regulation as a key priority in the policy making. At present live performance organisations are confronted with more than 150 EU regulations affecting the way in which they operate. Every performance is unique and results from the combined effort of the performers on the stage and a large team working behind the curtains. As our sector is in all aspects very international, it requires numerous rules to be taken into account to make a production and finally present it to an audience. I believe that it’s time for Europe to relieve the sector by reducing compliance costs, taking away obstacles to mobility and increasing access to finance."

      EP TRAN Committee recognises right for carriage of musical instruments on airplanes

      The International Federation of musicians (FIM) and Pearle*-Live Performance Europe welcome the vote by the Transport and Tourism Committee of the European Parliament, on 17 December 2013, of amendments to the “Revised Regulation (EC) No 2027/97 on air carrier liability in respect of the carriage of passengers and their baggage by air”. Mobility is absolutely vital to individual musicians, music ensembles, orchestras or bands, whose national and international careers rely largely on tours and concerts abroad. In 2012, a petition coordinated by FIM and supported by Pearle* attracted more than 43,000 signatures in just a few weeks, which drew attention to the specific needs of the music sector. The EU Commission’s proposal, as amended by the TRAN Committee, provides an adequate answer to the concerns expressed, via a limited set of practical rules governing the carrying of musical instruments in the aircraft’s cabin. The TRAN amendments, in line with the EU Commission’s objectives, further improve transparency and predictability in this respect, without creating any particular burden for airline companies.

      Pearle* launches campaign to make an end to the cross-border double taxation of artistes

      On the eve of 50 years of existence of article 17 (artistes and sportsmen) in the OECD Model Tax Convention, Pearle*, the principle body representing the live performance sector in Europe, calls upon the Member States who are also members of the OECD to remove double taxation. This cross-border tax obstacle is a result of the application of article 17, which gives a taxing right to the source country for live performances of nonresident artistes and artist groups. Pearle* members represent over 5,000 performing arts entreprises and organisations across Europe. At their general assembly meeting last November in Brussels, they adopted unanimously a resolution including proposals to make an end to the double taxation of artistes. The entire sector is affected by the application of article 17 of the OECD Model Tax Convention: employers of artists, touring companies, individual artists, promoters or venues who programme foreign live performance groups. It is a major hindrance for the live performance sector to develop its activities in the European Union and worldwide.

      Pearle* celebrates the role of sector federations in live performance. Awards given to associations

      For the first time in history, a European employers and sector federation has awarded national associations for their achievements in various activities: audience development, innovating tools, data collection, collective bargaining and green initiatives. The awards were given at a high-level event on 22 November in Brussels in the presence of László Andor, Commissioner responsible for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion. Pearle*, Live Performance Europe, acknowledges the role of sector federations in their capacity as employers associations creating stable industrial relations and promoting a level playing field for working conditions in the sector, particularly via the collective bargaining processes. Sector federations, in addition to providing services to their members, also undertake various activities aimed at the wider public and general promotion of the sector. Sector federations also support policy-making by providing data and information to public authorities and by working closely with relevant government departments on issues affecting their sector. These functions and activities were celebrated at the high-level event in the theatre Daarkom in Brussels. Pearle's President Catherine Baumann stressed: "this is about celebrating so many of these initiatives, undertaken in different ways and in diverse environments. Every nominee is a winner in its own right. And I personally would say the same for those many associations who did not send in an application, but whose work contributes to strengthening the performing arts sector every day." Referring to the crisis and the resiliency of the sector, Commissioner Andor underlined that: "In such a context, it has been demonstrated over and over again that intensive dialogue between social partners is the best guarantee to address the challenges in the most appropriate manner, both in the interest of the workers and of the organisations concerned."
