The Danish Artist Union

As the Danish trade union for performing artists, we represent soloists, groups and companies within the areas of music, circus, dance, show and performance.

We provide individual legal assistance and expert advice on contracts, agreements, salaries and careers, and safeguard the copyrights of performing artists on stage and in all media. We work both nationally and internationally to improve conditions for performing artists in cultural policy contexts.

Every day, the Danish Artists’ Union provides professional advice, and defends and promotes the value of the work of performing artists.
