Promotion of Culture

The Bank’s activity in culture is planned based on medium-term action plans and the following assumptions:

  • Is accomplished solely at the program level (the Bank does not support institutions but only selected programs run by these institutions);
  • The Bank prefers to cooperate in long-term programs with clearly defined goals and haute couture programs;
  • The Bank does its utmost for the programs it supports to have as broad as possible social reception and to be accessible to its recipients through the media;
  • The Bank’s major partners in pursuing cultural programs are cultural institutions, non-governmental institutions and the media.
