  • to promote a more authentic public recognition of the professional artists and of their role in changing the society and in the integration of Romania in the European structures;
  • to represent and support the interests of the professional artists and of their associative forms to the central and local authorities - responsible for the administrative and political decision making, that can have an impact upon the spiritual, political, economical and social climate within which the professional artists are formed and are acting and within which their public image is created - the mass-media and other opinion leaders, representatives of the civil society in Romania;
  • to represent and assist at the international level all union members with the building-up of a framework for dialogue and co-operation between the professional artists and the political, cultural bodies and professional organisations of artists.

Action means of the ANUC:

  • lobby (the local and central authorities);
  • partnership with the representative institutions of the central and local administration as well as of the non-governmental sector for the restructuring of the legal and fiscal framework for art and culture;

The ANUC was legally registered and became a legal person in December 1995. It is a non-governmental and non-profit Romanian organization, operating under the provisions of the Law No. 21/1924.

The organizational structure of ANUC is similar to other umbrella organisations in Europe, special created for improving the dialog between professional artists and decision makers and administrators, at national and international level, between their own association forms and between them and similar structures at international level.

ANUC is opened for other professional artists’ organizations in Romania. According to the Status of National Alliance of Creators’ Unions, "this can be done in respect of the present Status and by unanimous vote of the member unions".

All decisions regarding the ANUC’s function are taken by common consent by the Board, constituted by the presidents and vice-presidents of the member unions. The Executive Chairman of ANUC is elected from the presidents or the vice-presidents of the member unions, by rotation, every twelve months.
