Sign now: Creatives worldwide declare their solidarity
CISAC has drafted a statement for creatives from all countries of the world to express their solidarity with Ukraine. The solidarity statement reads:
“Many of these innocent victims are creators like us, people who inspire with their work and who make up the rich culture of Ukraine. We call on Russia to cease its killing of innocent civilians.“
We consider this initiative to be an important signal and invite all our members and partners of GEMA to join this call to action and sign the declaration.
CISAC Aid Fund
Together with its member associations, CISAC has set up an international aid fund for the victims in Ukraine. GEMA also participates in the aid fund. The resources of which are primarily intended to benefit Ukrainian creatives and their families.
The donations will be paid out to the Ukrainian collective management organisation UACRR and its members and employees as well as the aid programme of the Polish collective management organisation ZAIKS. In addition, collecting societies in other neighbouring countries of Ukraine will pass on funds directly to local aid organisations.
