If not now, when? Equity wants to have an open discussion with you about what you can do to value your own art : understand your rights, how much you should be paid and how to protect yourself in the performing arts industry.

At 7pm on 22 September, in the Guildhall, Derry/Londonderry, Equity Northern Ireland branch is giving artists and their supporters a not-to-be-missed opportunity to discuss the value of arts in Derry/Londonderry and across the North West together with working performers and their representatives.

Hear from and question the amazing panel on their own experiences, views and suggestions on how we can all improve things for performing artists and the arts in the North West.
