8.1.4 Support to professional artists associations or unions
There are very few artists' associations in Albania, all of which are struggling for survival. The biggest is the Writers' League, once the country's only artists' association, which survives only due to the rental of its facilities. Film artists have established three associations but they all function as lobby organisations for film producers; none of the existing associations provide any support for their members.
Unions do not operate in Albania.
