Nordic cooperation

The Nordic Council of Ministers is the key platform for Nordic cultural cooperation. Culture and the arts are the very cornerstones of the Nordic community.

The Nordic Council of Ministers’ Strategy for Nordic Cultural Cooperation (2013-2020) emphasises the inherent value and the social contribution of arts and culture. The strategy is supplemented by a yearly Presidency programme. Norway holds the presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers in 2017.
