Ministry of Culture
This is the new policy council for the cultural and creative industries, which has been tasked with improving Norway’s cultural and creative competitiveness
- Norwegian art and culture have enormous potential to invigorate Norway’s competitiveness. I am delighted that we have found such accomplished and successful partners to advise on how to best to get ahead in the global competition that is now unfolding locally, says Minister of Culture Thorhild Widvey.
- The range of films on offer should be broad, varied and of high quality. The public should have access to films regardless of where they live, and irrespective of what platform they want to use. By placing greater emphasis on universal design, we will also make sure that content is available to everyone,” said Minister of Culture Thorhild Widvey when presenting the government’s white paper on film.
Lowering the threshold for children and young people’s participation in sporting and physical activities is one of the main priorities in this year’s distribution of lottery funds.
