UNESCO Online Survey on Status of the Artist

20 September 2022, International

In 2022, UNESCO launched a global consultation on the implementation of the 1980 Recommendation concerning the Status of the Artist. This consultation aims to map and monitor the policies, measures and initiatives implemented by Member States, NGOs and INGOs to support the status of the artist; identify challenges and opportunities faced by Member States, NGOs and INGOs in the implementation of the 1980 Recommendation, and their specific capacity-building needs to revise existing laws and policies or implement relevant initiatives, as well as collect and share best practices that illustrate how the provisions of 1980 Recommendation can be translated into effective policies and measures to support artists and the emergence of sustainable cultural ecosystems.
