In Slovakia, there are professional artists associations in every area of artistic professional production, amateur production, artistic translation, journalism and film clubs. In the database of the non-profit entities that are active in the area of arts and culture, which can be found at http://www.mksr/adresare, there are 66 associations registered, of which 4 deal with the administration of authors’ rights. A number of these associations are members of various international professional associations.
The non-profit sector in the area of culture and arts may draw subsidies for their activities from the grant programme of the Ministry of Culture. In Slovakia, there are no special grant programmes for supporting overhead costs of non-profit art and cultural organisations (capital grants).
