The association serves the interests of writers, painters, composers, directors, playwrights, scientists, inventors, and other representatives of the cultural sphere. In September 1996, it prepared a draft law on the rights of professional artists and writers concerning trademark and copyright practices. In autumn 1997, it worked with the government on a proposal "for the spiritual development of Kazakstan" through support of the cultural sphere.

A print version of much of the information contained in this Central Asian Third Sector Organizations section can be found in Civil Society in Central Asia (Seattle: University of Washington Press, 1999).
