Regional Arts Council
The Arts Council of Uusimaa is an expert body of the Arts Promotion Centre Finland responsible for the region of Uusimaa.
The arts council makes decisions regarding the awarding grants and awards for artists, artist groups and organisations within its own area of responsibility on the basis of peer reviews. In addition, it provides expert advice and participates in the strategy work of the Arts Promotion Centre Finland.
The members of the arts council are appointed by the Central Arts Council for two-year terms. The expertise of members of other national and regional arts councils, as well as that of external experts, may also be utilised in the peer reviews of applications.
