Organisations

FLAC

Founded in 2014 to defend the rights and claims of Luxembourg composers and authors at a national and international level, the Luxembourg federation of authors and composers (FLAC) now has more than 100 members. The active members of the association are full-time or part-time composers, are members of a copyright collecting society, have completed higher musical studies or have extensive experience and skills in the field of musical composition. FLAC's members are divided into three main sections; the first works in the field of contemporary/classical music, the second in film music, and the third in jazz and other contemporary music.

The association is committed to fulfilling several missions to develop a strategy for the professionalisation of this very specific sector. One of the main points is trade union work in favour of work opportunities, tariffs and legal assistance. Similarly, FLAC acts as an expert interlocutor with the cultural sector, partners and public decision-makers, in particular, to preserve and promote the policy of public or private commissions and to defend the Luxembourg repertoire. Besides, the members of the association are committed to networking on a national and international level, also in an interdisciplinary way.
