About Playright

PlayRight+ is the social, cultural and educational department at PlayRight.

The department was founded to support performing artists and defend their interests within the sector in which they work.

The actions undertaken by PlayRight+ are very divers. We inform about developments within the sector that concern performers. We do advocacy and lobbying with amongst other governments, policy authorities, media and professional associations. We promote research which is related to performers and their professional, socio-economic and legal position within the music- and audiovisual industry.

Furthermore, PlayRight+ offers funding to organisations and projects that put the interest of performers first. We call upon such organisations and projects to send in their applications for support before September 30th 2018. More info on “PlayRight+ supports”.
