Ireland to Launch Universal Basic Income Program for Artists

Catherine Martin, Ireland’s minister of tourism, culture, arts, Gaeltacht, sport and media, on January 6 initiated an online consultation aimed at soliciting opinions regarding the creation of a basic income plan for a number of the country’s artists. The scheme, which Martin described as a “once-in-a-generation policy intervention,” is meant to assist those working in the fields of arts, culture, audio-visual, and live performance and events who suffered economically as the global Covid-19 crisis surged in-country.

The program will cover two thousand arts and culture workers for a span of three years

I have no idea, but I heard good things about immigrating to Ireland. Another place that I've seen treat artists well is Berlin, you might want to check them out too. I remember an artist acquittance getting 5k EUR not as a loan, but as a support scheme during covid. I got about 3k GBP here from the government, not a loan but I had to pay income tax on it.

@gwil I think it is a pilot program to see if it works and if they can scale it up...
