Sweden/ 8.1 Support to artists and other creative workers  

8.1.4 Support to professional artists associations or unions

Grants or subsidies are not given to trade unions or other organisations that represent artists, as they are negotiating counterparts and need to strictly maintain their independence from the government. National committees of international NGOs, such as the International Artists Association (IAA), the World Crafts Council (WCC) etc., receive annual subsidies in the form of participation fees for travel to or hosting international conferences, as do many other non-governmental organisations.
