May 13, 2021

It is possible to implement a Basic Income for artists and art workers.  Social Justice Ireland's latest study shows that the Government could honour its commitment to pilot a Universal Basic Income by introducing a Basic Income for artists as proposed recently by the Arts and Culture Recovery Taskforce Report.  This initiative would have minimal costs to the Exchequer and could be implemented from 1st January 2022.

In this episode, we hear from Seán Ward, Board Member of Social Justice Ireland and long-term advocate of Basic Income, on our proposals for a Basic Income Model.
