We safeguard the professional and artistic interests of our members and make collective agreements with the theatres, or theatre organizations, and with the Danish Television.

To safeguard the interests of our members we have established internal committees, are negotiating agreements, arranging in-service training, are represented on various boards, a.o. Danish Artists’ Advisory Council, Create Denmark, and the Theatre Museum.
Last but not least, we handle problems of copy-right, e.g. in cooperation with the copy-right organization Copy-Dan, and on committees dealing with the theatre policy.
