The International Association of Art (IAA) Europe is a network of over 40 national member organisations across Europe, representing professional visual artists.

“Joining IAA Europe’s Executive Committee is a huge honour. The IAA Europe’s core values of exchange and advocacy provides a foundation for which a-n, on behalf of artists in the UK, can work together with organisations across Europe and other international members to establish a better cultural appreciation for artists. I am grateful to be part of a network of people and organisations that can learn from each other and make improvements to the living and working conditions of artists, social security systems, authors’ rights and free flow of artworks” says Jerome.
