Seminar on Working Conditions of Artists in Europe

On Thursday May 16th 2024, the Belgian Presidency of the Council of the European Union organises  a "Seminar on working conditions for artists in Europe", in Brussels.

The aim of the seminar is to report on recent legislative or institutional initiatives in this area and to offer a unique opportunity for a diverse audience to meet. Cultural players and their representatives, as well as political decision-makers and institutions from the Member States and the European Union, are invited to take this opportunity to discuss, together, how to improve working conditions for artists in Europe. 

The seminar will focus on:

  • The “EU framework for the social and professional situation of artists and workers in the cultural and creative sectors”

  • Fair practices in the cultural and creative sectors
