The Council of the Creative Unions of Latvia (CCUL) was founded in 1988 at the Plenary Meeting of Writers Union as Culture Council of Creative Unions. In 1995 it was registered as an association of professional creative organizations “The Council of the Creative Unions of Latvia”. CCUL is comprised of 10 creative unions, and total membership exceeds 3500 individual members.

To make information about Latvian artists available to wider audience, since January 2010 we've launched English interface for our Artists database. It contains CV and portfolio information about 3315 Latvian Artists. In the future we are planning to translate the database in English. For the moment we recommend to use any of Translation programms, e.g. Google toolbar, to find out details about artists. Basic information about creative unions and their contacts can be found under appropriate section.
