Region Västra Götaland purposefully invests in culture and has the largest regional culture budget in the country, both in terms of the award per inhabitant and estimated in Swedish kronor.
Kultur i Väst is the region's cultural administration and manages development work under the authority of the Cultural Affairs Committee. We have been commissioned to strengthen and develop the role of culture and forms of art in Västra Götaland and to initiate investments based on the strategic cultural policy objectives.
This work involves creating the prerequisites for evenly distributed cultural activities from a geographical, content and social perspective. Our objective is for accessibility, equality, diversity and internationalization to characterize the development of the cultural sector.
