Promotion of culture

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

  • support is extended not to institutions but to specific programs executed by them,                          
  • cooperation in long-term programs with clearly defined goals is preferred,                                  
  • supported programs should have broad public audience and be available also through the media,
  • major partners in pursuing cultural programs should be first of all cultural institutions, non-governmental institutions and the media.
