Opening. Becoming an agent on the field of arts and culture in Finland

The project is a joint effort by Culture for All Service, Cupore and International Artists' Center Finland Association. The project runs from autumn 2017 until August 2019.

The aim of the project is to create models, that support the possibilities of arts and culture professionals with migrant background to become employed by Finnish arts and culture institutions and thus enable their better inclusion into the Finnish society.

As a part of the project Cupore examines the competence, attitudes and willingness of Finnish arts and culture institutions to recruit arts and culture professionals with migrant background. Cupore also examines how diversity is taken into account in the institutions’ professional work and public programs.

The project is funded by the Ministry of Education and Culture.
