Culture is an expression of an individual’s or society’s need for knowing and understanding themselves and others, the community and the world. It is a field for identity formation, a platform for dialogue within a community and for integration with other cultures, and a space for shaping an image of the past, present and future. We strive for a free, diverse and quality culture that contributes to democracy and the development of society. We provide a stimulating environment for arts and language, support creativity, conserve and protect cultural heritage, and promote the diversity and accessibility of arts and media.
