Avaus - Opening. Becoming an agent in the field of arts and culture in Finland (2017-2020) was a project which supported the participation of artists and cultural workers of non-Finnish origin or background in the Finnish arts and culture scene. The project was carried out together with the Center for Cultural Policy Research Cupore and Globe Art Point, and it was supported by the Ministry of Education and Culture and the National Agency for Education.
In 2019, Culture for All Service, Globe Art Point and the Center for Cultural Policy Research Cupore organize a Diversity Agent Course for cultural workers and artists of non-Finnish origin or background. The course is part of the project Avaus and supported by the National Agency for Education.
Matkalla – On the go! Mentoring artists and educating gatekeepers to pave career pathways of disabled artists
Matkalla - On the go! Mentoring artists and educating gatekeepers to pave career pathways of disabled artists is a kickstart project funded by Kone Foundation. The aim is to prepare models to promote the inclusion of disabled and Deaf artists in the art field. Potential tools are artists’ mentoring or peer support and learning among colleagues, as well as educating gatekeepers on disabled people’s issues and diversity, and creating a network around the topic.
Culture for All participates in a learning partnership "Culture - Inclusion - Participation" in 2013-2014. The project is financed by the Grundtvig programme of adult education, which is part of the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Union.
The project Multilingualism and diversity as a resource in the cultural field – employment and integration through literature in the Nordic Countries (2016-2018) worked in the area of multilingual literature. The project supported the inclusion of non-dominant language literature in the Nordic literary field from the point of view of both authors and readers.
The Culture for All Service organizes every third year a forum on a specific theme for discussing questions concerning culture and equality. The first one is The Forum of Equality in Culture: Accessibility 3.0 and it will be arranged 2-4.11.2016.
