Estonia - Increase in budget for salaries of artists and writers - January 31, 2019

In 2015 the country introduced a budget to provide salaries equal to the national average wage to a small group of artists and writers. Before 2015 there were no official funds to support artists and writers. The ministry of culture is planning to increase the budget for artists and writers salaries. With the higher budget, starting from January 2019, the amount of monthly paid salaries will increase from the level of the national average wage to a salary that equals 1.1 times the minimum wage of cultural workers with higher education. Furthermore, the number of artists and writers that can apply for this monthly income will from 2021 onwards be raised from 24 to 30 writers and artists.
