Connected with

BBK is connected with and a member of different organisations. We work together with organisations like BBK to make sure the professional practise of visual artists can improve.

We have contacts with members of Parliament and with other politicians and with policy makers. Through these contacts we aim to create a good vision on visual art and the profession.


The General Assemblee determines the policy; the board and the national office implement it. Do you have questions about the policy of the BBK? Mail us via bbk[at]

Federatie Beeldrechten

Copyright organization Pictoright, together with BBK, BNO, Professional Organization for Artists (BOK), DuPho, Kunstenbond and NVJ-NVF, has founded in 2021 the Federation Image Rights. With this new partnership they want to strengthen the exploitation of image rights for and by the makers involved and improve their position.


Creatieve Coalitie

Forty-five organisations, professional and interest groups, of all workers – makers, independent professionals and employees – have joined forces and established the Creatieve Coalitie.

The Creatieve Coalitie makes a concrete contribution to improving the social-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 his or her professional practice and wallet. Together you are stronger.


Stichting Leenrecht

If copyrighted works (eg books, music, movies, or art) are made available through lending, rightholders such as writers, translators, illustrators, musicians, directors and publishers should receive fair compensation. The right to this compensation is called leenrecht. The Stichting Leenrecht has been designated by the minister to collect this statutory compensation.
