Work is currently underway on the Act on the Rights of the Professional. The mechanisms proposed in the project (see chapter 2.3) give a chance to adapt the current law, in particular in the field of social security, to the specificity of artistic activity, and also answers a number of pressing issues, e.g. regarding the costs of obtaining income from such activities.
According to the project, the artist’s status is not obligatory and does not condition artistic or creative activity (amateur or professional) in any way. It can be obtained with the appropriate education or achievements confirmed by a representative artistic association or creative association chosen by the artist. The Act sets out the conditions for the representativeness of the above organisation in a transparent and pluralistic way. The legislation work is currently pending.
