non EU B permit, freelance work?

Hi everyone

I have read many posts with a headline similar to mine, but the situation is never the same.
I am living in Fribourg, came here 6 months ago with a family reunification visa with husband and kids (he works for a university). I have a non EU B permit, and will be hired to work 1 day a week for a local university. I am an architect with a masters degree.

My question:

Is it possible for me to do freelance work?

In my country besides working as an independent architect, I also provided services of architectural visualization and artistic renderings/graphics, to architecture studios, I even sold paintings and engravings. These are activities I would very much like to devote myself to here, but I haven't found information about what I would have to do to pay taxes, register myself or whatever may be required. I even doubt I can work independently with a B permit, but I am unsure.
If anyone can enlighten me with some information I would greatly appreciate it.
I already wrote to the Service de la population et des migrants, and I am waiting for their reply.

thank you!

May depend on spouse's nationality. EU/EFTA then yes you can be self-employed. Non-EU might need to ask permission.

Go to Spomi in person and speak to them. People there are friendly and helpful. They are the ones who should authorize you if required.
