Kunstenaarsstatuut becomes kunstwerkattest: what do we know?

Twenty years ago, the 'kunstenaarsstatuut' was introduced, an adaptation of the rules concerning social security focused on artists. Now we are presented with a great reform: the so-called 'kunstwerkattest'. The change was made possible together with the participation platform Working in the Arts. (source: Kunstenpunt).

Do you want to know more about the reform of the 'kunstenaarsstatuut' to the 'kunstenaarsattest' and the profile of 'kunstwerker'? Then register for this webinar of Cultuurloket!


The Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts is about to blow out 360 birthday candles. You can only imagine how many students have graduated here in the past couple of years - and even centuries! – and have traded the familiar ateliers and classrooms for a career in the arts sector or cultural field.

We like to put a spotlight on our alumni, whether recently graduated or having left the schools years or decades ago.
