The aim of the course has been to offer tools for developing diversity in the arts and culture sector.
The course introduced participants to topics related to diversity, familiarised them with the arts and culture sector and cultural policy in Finland and offered an opportunity to work concretely with diversity in an institutional context. Participants were asked to actively contribute their own expertise and offer sparring to each other.
