Who isThe Smart Fund?

The Smart Fund is a proposal by culture industry organisations to ensure creators and performers are paid for their work through a mechanism that also drives investment in digital creativity with local communities.

It does this by using funds from sales of electronic devices which copy, store and share creative content.

Information on the coalition of organisations can be found here:

 

DACS (Visual Artists)

ALCS (Writers)

BECS (Performers)

Directors UK (Screen directors)

This kind of contribution would bring so much to creatives who have already suffered such a huge blow due to the pandemic. Those creatives inevitably one day end up contributing to the content that we all enjoy watching on those devices! So supporting them on that journey feels appropriate and necessary.
