Diversity in the field of arts and culture: Development of monitoring data (2nd ed.)
Cupore Fact Sheet
Diversity in the arts and culture sector is regularly monitored in many countries. The starting point has been the need to make visible and support the realization of equity and inclusion. This monitoring is carried out by ministries of culture, arts councils and other public cultural policy and funding bodies, as well as by the sector’s own organisations. They rely on data provided by statistical authorities and their own data production.
In Finland, statistics on arts and culture are produced using register data and surveys. Perspectives of equality and diversity are identified in the data and analyses in varying and inconsistent ways. This fact sheet describes the needs and conditions for developing tools for diversity monitoring and data production on diversity in the arts and culture sector.
