Bulgarian artists whose monthly incomes were below EUR 500 in 2019 will receive one minimum salary, including the social security contributions, in the months during the state of emergency and the month after its end, Bulgaria’s Minister of Culture Boil Banov announced at an extraordinary briefing. The measure concerns people from the so-called free sector, where many Bulgarian artists, painters, dancers, musicians and literary men are employed. Minister Banov assumed that nearly 1,200 people who are currently unable to work for objective reasons will benefit from this support.
