Cultural actions

ADAGP plays a cultural role by funding projects intended to raise the profile of visual arts and promote them with the public nationally and internationally. It also pays a contribution to the continuing development fund for artists.

Cultural actions are financed by the sums collected for the private copying levy, a quarter of which is dedicated to such actions in accordance with the provisions of article L. 321-9 of the French intellectual property code.
