National Council for the Performing Arts

The National Council for the Performing Arts and the Arts Promotion Centre Finland support individual artists in the field of the theatrical arts, as well as the working situation of professional independent theatre groups. The council also promotes the accessibility and diversity of the theatrical arts in Finland.

The Arts Promotion Centre Finland supports professional theatres that do not receive state subsidies by virtue of the Act on Central Government Transfers to Local Governments. Each year around 44 independent theatre groups received discretionary operational subsidies.

The majority of state support for theatre in Finland is allocated by the Ministry of Education and Culture, in part as central government transfers. Currently 46 spoken word theatres are supported by state subsidies by virtue of the Act on Central Government Transfers to Local Governments.
