Negotiations with Regional Art Museums

Regional art museums receive increased statutory state aid to support their operations. One of the conditions for receiving aid is that the museum must have a plan on the focus areas and objectives of regional operations (Museums Decree 1192/2005), which are negotiated periodically with the Finnish Hertage Agency.

Museums’ plans 2014–2017

The plans for 2014–2017 were negotiated in spring 2014.
Regional art museums prepared their plans based on four primary tasks:

· Development of regional museum operations and cooperation
· Regional collection work, research and documentation
· Accessibility, availability and conveying of information concerning visual arts and culture
· Regional advocacy and expert services
