8.1.1 Overview of strategies, programmes and direct or indirect forms of support

Cultural creativity and artists in Azerbaijan are supported by centralised and local budgets, mainly by providing relevant conditions for maintaining cultural institutions, salaries, honoraria and payment of retirement and health contributions. Other ways that the state supports creativity are by involving artists in realising state development programmes and projects, as well as organisational and financial supporting of private projects and initiatives, holding festivals and competitions in different spheres of culture for professionals (theatre, music, visual arts and etc), sending delegations to international events, and by providing free primary, secondary and high special education etc.
