The theme for the dialogues in the spring season 2024 is “security and trust”.
Cultural Dialogues are moderated discussions between artists, cultural workers and other creatives who would like to share their experience from their professional and personal lives with like minded people. These conversations aim to foster a deeper understanding of the professional artistic community and the unique challenges faced by artists from diverse backgrounds based in Finland. An audio recording will be made during the Dialogues. Transcripts of the recording will be anonymised. The summary of the dialogues will include the topics and issues that the participants talked about but not their personal stories.
Cultural Dialogues have been initiated by the Arts Promotion Centre Finland (Taike) and organised in collaboration with Globe Art Point (G.A.P) and the Ministry of Education and Culture (OKM). The insights and topics discussed during these events will serve as valuable input for Taike, G.A.P and OKM in developing programmes that support diversity and accessibility within the cultural and artistic landscape in Finland.
Importantly, the summary of our dialogues is to be presented to the working group on the cultural policy report that will be included in the prime minister Orpo's government programme. The vision presented in the cultural policy report and the measures to achieve it are based on the situational picture of the arts and culture sector and its key drivers of change. This report will create an ambitious vision for the long-term development of Finland's arts and cultural policy.
All sessions will run between 16-18:00 at the Globe Art Point’s premises, located in Malminkatu 5, 00100, Helsinki. (Please refer to the accessibility information on our website). The dialogue itself takes 2h. The rest of the programme is dedicated to getting to know each other and networking.
