SAN FRANCISCO: Basic Income and the Arts Community event (VIDEO)

A panel discussion about the effect of basic income on artists and the arts community was held in San Francisco on June 20. The discussion addressed such questions as the following:

  • “What kind of impact would basic income have on the creative community?”
  • “Are arts groups currently supportive of basic income, or even talking about it?”
  • “What’s the best way to get creatives involved in the basic income movement?”

Participants included Alexis Frasz of Helicon Collaborative, Aaron Perry-Zucker of the Creative Action Network, Tania Ku Infinity Pictures, and Rebeka Rodriguez of the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

A video recording of the panel discussion is available on YouTube
