FYR of Macedonia/ 8.1 Support to artists and other creative workers
8.1.1 Overview of strategies, programmes and direct or indirect forms of support
Cultural creativity is supported on the state level in several ways:
- direct budgetary support for projects of national interest through annual public competition in all cultural fields, regardless of the status of the institution or the artist;
- direct budgetary contributions for independent artists (retirement, health insurance etc.);
- indirect support through tax and customs deductions; and
- ad hoc support from the reserve budgetary funds for projects outside the competition procedure.
