Affiliated with

The BBK is affiliated with various organizations and works together with fellow organizations to ensure that the professional practice of visual artists can improve. The BBK maintains contacts with members of the House of Representatives, other politicians and policymakers at various levels, in order to contribute to a good vision of the visual arts and artistry, and to make known the concrete situation of autonomously working visual artists.


The members' meeting determines the policy; it is implemented by the board and the national office.

Creatieve Coalitie

Forty-five organisations, professional and interest groups, of all workers - creators, independent professionals and employees have joined forces and founded the Creative Coalition.

The Creative Coalition makes a concrete contribution to improving the socio-economic working conditions of workers.

By joining forces and more mutual cooperation and knowledge exchange, we can better represent the voice of makers (including independent professionals) and all other workers and improve their position in such a way that everyone notices it in their professional practice and wallet. Together you are stronger.
