Equality and Accessibility in Finnish Cultural Policy

Accessibility means taking people’s different needs into account and advancing equal opportunities. Equality is embedded in the recognition that all people have equal rights regardless of personal characteristics. Accessible arts and culture means equal rights and opportunities for all people to develop themselves, use arts and cultural services and participate in cultural life, also as actors and professionals. The Finnish Non-Discrimination Act underscores the authorities’ duty to promote equality and access.
