All creative workers are welcome to sign the appeal. All citizens can also show their support for the appeal on the campaign website (in Finnish).
Olavi Uusivirta tells us why he joined the campaign:
“Gigs employ not just music and presentation technology professionals, but also marketing experts, bus drivers, hotel staff, salespersons, critics and photographers. The impact of the creative industry is many times larger than the industry itself. This is what we mean when we say that in Finland, creativity is life. Now is the time to make investments, not cutbacks,” Uusivirta says.
