Spain/ 8.1 Support to artists and other creative workers  

8.1.4 Support to professional artists associations or unions

Although there is no stable government support for artist associations or unions, they can apply for annual subsidies channelled through sector-specific aid programmes. Thus, many professional associations apply for aid from the State Secretariat for Culture aimed at encouraging cultural action and promotion (support to non-profit entities). This is the case, for example, of the recent aids by the National Institute of Performing Arts and Music to national associations, federations and confederations to develop theatre and circus activities with national or international projection.
