Netherlands/ 8.1 Support to artists and other creative workers  

8.1.4 Support to professional artists associations or unions

In the Netherlands, there is no direct support from the government to artists' associations or unions. Artists' unions are financed by their members. There is no official negotiation mechanism between the professional artists' trade unions and the government. Artists and their organisations make themselves heard in public, but their direct influence is modest.

Central government provides support to service organisations for artists, such as Culture-Entrepreneurship[Cultuur-Ondernemen] (see chapter 4.2.9 and chapter 8.1.1).
