Taike has approximately 80 employees. Half of these are administrative staff (civil servants) and half are regional artists working on arts promotion projects throughout the country on the basis of fixed-term employment contracts.

Taike has a head office in Helsinki, as well as 10 offices in the regions.

Taike operates under the supervision of the Ministry of Education and Culture and continues the activities of the Arts Council of Finland, which was founded in 1968.
