Jazz and the Fair Practice Code
This panel is Dutch spoken.
The Fair Practice Code was introduced in the autumn of 2017 by Kunsten ’92, the cross-sectoral interest group for art, culture and heritage in the Netherlands. The Code provides a framework for a fair chain of work and pay in the cultural and creative sector, based on five core values: solidarity, diversity, trust, sustainability and transparency. If you do the Quickscan on fairpracticecode.nl, you will be asked to think about these core values and how you act on them. Several panel members agree that this sometimes produces surprising results.
Reason enough for a constructive discussion about the ideal working practice, using the Fair Practice Code as the starting point. People working in the jazz sector know all too well that sometimes you are a client, sometimes you are a creator, sometimes you are an employer. And aren’t we all familiar with the conflict between a deep love of music, the idealism that fuels the will to create, produce and organize, and good management? Do trust and transparency offer enough of a basis for a fair chain? With a new Kunstenplan (Arts Plan) to be introduced for the period 2021 – 2024, how can we achieve this goal together, with musicians, but also with the other stakeholders involved? How can we hold on to solidarity in our chain? And how will we keep the process of Fair Practice as simple as possible?
