This summer, PlayRight was officially recognized as an arts federation! We can now nominate candidates for the future Arts Committee, but more importantly, we are strengthening our position in the industry.
Last April, a call went out to organizations in the cultural sector in Belgium to apply for recognition as an “arts federation.” The call is aimed at organizations active in the artistic, artistic-technical, and artistic-support sectors.
The goal? To be recognized politically and administratively as a representative federation, but also to be able to nominate members and experts to participate in the new Arts Commission.
To qualify for recognition, organizations had to meet the following criteria:
PlayRight wants to become a key player in the Belgian cultural community. Our collective management company therefore submitted an application, because it wants to increase its sectoral weight and make the needs and expertise of performing artists in Belgium even better known.
On July 6 came the good news: PlayRight has been officially recognized as an arts federation! We can now nominate candidates for the future Arts Commission, but we are strengthening our position in the sector. PlayRight’s goal is to become a force to be reckoned with to defend the interests of artists most effectively. This news means we can move forward in that direction.
