Poland/ 8.1 Support to artists and other creative workers  

8.1.4 Support to professional artists associations or unions

Artists' unions have the legal status of associations, which means they have the right to conduct their own economic activities. Many unions use this right to run their own galleries. Throughout the 1990s, the situation of unions / associations deteriorated due to "the pains" of market transformation and to the fact that they no longer received subsidies from the state budget. Some associations have re-adjusted to the new market requirements and are able to continue operating. Many of the associations are engaged in distribution of royalties.
