Whether you were Leave, or Remain or Undecided - we've all been swindled.
We've been sold false promises and unrealistic dreams.
You wouldn't accept being swindled at any other time, so why now?
Uncertainties now facing industries after BREXIT are worrying, including creative busyness, freelancers, and the young hoping to begin a creative career. London’s Superimpose Studio challenge this topic with a new campaign #Swindled opens up the conversation into the affects of BREXIT.
The creative sector is one of the most important industries in the UK, especially as most of our hard industry and production is now produced abroad. The UK creative sector is one of the world most competitive and successful, but can it remain at the top of the pile once BREXIT has potentially stunted it's upward growth?
Our younger generation look at a creative career being a popular choice, and we owe it to them to have the option in obtaining an education, as well as a potential working career that is not just the chosen few!!! If we head towards a BREXIT in it's current design, London will potentially no longer be as competitive in comparison with the likes of Paris, Berlin and Amsterdam. And with cities like Lisbon and Madrid becoming more popular as a destination to make home, the competition will become even more aggressive.
British projects have been hugely successful in applying for EU funding. We have gained 11% of the entire €520million Creative Europe budget, supporting 283 cultural and creative organisations between 2014-2016. A vote for Brexit is consequently a vote to withdraw funding from ourselves
So the burger and its meaning:
Well bluntly we are being cheated in this 'blunder' of a political process. Regardless if your a burger eater - or like us don't eat meat believing it's murder; we too the vegetarians are gettgin shaftered...
It's not too late to fix BREXIT.
