In the first panel, MPs will question representatives from different subsectors of the creative industries. They will likely ask the witnesses about their personal experiences with renumeration, the factors which cause ‘unfair’ renumeration, and the precarity faced by creative freelancers. The Committee could also ask about the impact of streaming and the WGA/SAG-AFTRA strikes on the sector, as well as the emerging threat of AI on creator livelihoods.

The second panel will feature representatives of Creative UK and Creators’ Rights Alliance. Questions from the cross-party Committee could focus on why creative workers are often employed on unfair terms, the CRA’s campaign for fair terms for creators, and the creation of a Creative Industries standards watchdog. MPs are also likely to whether poor creator renumeration is linked to wider problems of social mobility within the sector, the influence of real-terms funding cuts for the arts, and the lasting impact of COVID-19 on the creative industries.
