Study on organisations within the art and cultural sector

Creative professions and professions within arts and culture are a rapidly growing part of the international labor markets.

Through this project we will describe and quantify the various labor organizations within the field of arts and culture. Size, member profiles, tasks and collective agreements will be given weight in the analysis.

Other central questions will be: Which kind of hiring/contract arrangements are in use and is the balance between these various arrangements changing? Which factors are important for the members’ rights and safety in the labor market? Which services do the organizations offer their members? Is it possible to extend the cooperation between these organizations?

The project is commissioned by Norwegian LO.
