We campaign for the rights of visual artists and pay them royalties that help sustain their practice and livelihood. More about us.
DACS has commissioned a permanent artwork for the courtyard of its office in Bethnal Green, London. Made from ferns and plants, it is inspired by east London’s rich history of weaving and textile design.
Hundreds of UK-published artists and estates have been paid £114,000 in Dutch Public Lending Right (Dutch PLR) royalties from DACS.
