They have taken on joint responsibility for the implementation of activities, and in doing so are supported by the Nordic Council of Ministers and ARS BALTICA, who are also lead partners and partners of flagship projects. The PACs are responsible for the implementation of targets, objectives and projects of PA Culture and whenever relevant, for the review of targets, indicators, actions and projects of the priority area.
The cultural network ARS BALTICA supports cultural cooperation within the Baltic Sea Region and beyond, advocates for the significance of arts and culture on the political level and promotes the cultural life around the Baltic Sea. ARS BALTICA was established on the initiative of the Ministries of Culture of the Baltic Sea Region in 1991. It maintains tight links with the Council of the Baltic Sea States (CBSS). Within the Priority Area Culture ARS BALTICA is mainly responsible for the communication via website and Social Media and supports a close cooperation with the cultural actors of the region.
Nordic Council of Ministers
The Nordic Council of Ministers act as a forum for cooperation between the Nordic countries since 1971. The work is coordinated by the Nordic ministers for specific policy areas. In this context the Ministers of Culture see their overall goal in encouraging diversity of cultural expression and promoting artists and their work. NCM supports the coordinators of PA Culture politically and project-related.
