Financial support to the sector: The initiatives of PlayRight+

PlayRight+ currently also provides financial support to the sector via the following initiatives:

  • Fonds Norma Joossens (Audiovisual)
  • Fund Belgian Music (Music)
  • Emergency Fund (Audiovisual & Music)


The Fonds Norma Joossens, established by the King Baudouin Foundation, has as its main objective to support actors/actresses and comedians who do not have the sufficient financial means to meet their needs at retirement age.

Being strongly aware of the seriousness of the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on the industry, the fund has decided to release some of its resources to support ALL actors/actresses and comedians, regardless of their age. Following this opening to the entire sector, PlayRight+ subsequently decided to support the call for projects financially in order to help as many artists as possible!

More concretely, what does this mean? Well, this call for projects is open to any actor/actress/comedian living in Belgium who can demonstrate that his/her work and professional activities have greatly been reduced or stopped due to the corona crisis.

The original budget of this call for projects is 50,000€. A one-off amount of support between 700€ and 1,500€ will be awarded per approved file.

To benefit from this, you must submit an application to the Union des Artistes/ de Acteurspenning between Monday 13 September and Friday 12 November 2021.

More information can be found on the websites of the King Baudouin Foundation (here in French and here in Dutch), and also in the Union des Artistes and de acteurspeunning websites.


The Fund Belgian Music is a support fund for Belgian musicians that was established in the middle of the corona crisis in 2020. PlayRight+ is one of its founders, alongside Sabam for Culture, Galm, and Facir, and in collaboration with the King Baudouin Foundation.

Using its own resources and the support of generous artists, supporters and companies and organisations, the Fund Belgian Music supports music projects all over the country and of all genres. More specifically, the aid granted is aimed at supporting the creation, production, exploitation (marketing, communication and public relations), performance, internationalisation and export of music.

Fund Belgian Music works on the basis of annual calls for projects and an external jury. More information and the latest news can be found on


As part of PlayRight+’s social actions, PlayRight created a system of aid for the loss of income of its members due to the health crisis. The emergency fund was established in March 2020 and was reserved for artists who are affiliated with PlayRight. Learn more
