Sweden:
Safe cities for musicians


All over Europe city councils are hosting persecuted writers. Why not persecuted musicians? Chairperson of the Swedish Arts Council, Kerstin Brunnberg, raised the question on 15 November 2010.

Kerstin Brunnberg said to the Swedish Broadcasting Corporation:

“I am going to promote the idea of including musicians in the safe city system. We should not limit the system to writers. There are several catogories of artists who are not able to express themselves freely, so I believe that we have to incorporate raher than exclude other art forms.”
