Raising awareness on the implications of AI: the EVA AI manifesto


Artificial Intelligence is a tremendous tool that can effectively support and enhance visual artists’ special and distinctive creativity. However, the growing presence of this new technology in the cultural and creative sectors brings major challenges to which policymakers must react in order to protect the moral and economic rights of authors, which are endangered by AI.

EVA statement on the AI Act ahead of the plenary vote


European Visual Artists (EVA) is the single voice of European visual artists, promoting European creativity by raising awareness about artists’ rights and their precarious livelihoods across Europe. We welcome the “Proposal for a Regulation laying down harmonised rules on Artificial intelligence” (AI Act), as new AI technologies allow for new possibilities. At the same time, AI hurts human artists if not properly regulated.

EVA welcomes three new CMOs, bringing the number of members and observers to 31

The new observers will be able to take part in EVA’s activities, as agreed by the members during the last General Assemblies and in accordance with the statutes of the association.
