Each euro of funding for organisations under the Arts Decree in Flanders stimulates a further 1½ euro from other sources.
6.3 Trends and indicators for private cultural financing
Under the common denominator of "kwarts.be", the various support agencies for the arts, together with the Agency for Arts and Heritage, have developed a data set that contains key figures concerning the organisations that were subsidised during the first four-year term of the Arts Decree (2006-2009). In 2011 a research report examined the revenue of structurally subsidised arts organisations in 2007 and 2008. In those years the structural subsidies (of approx. 250 arts organisations) ranged from 86 to 89 million EUR while the total revenue was 220 to 229 million EUR. The structural subsidy acts as a driving force: for both seasons included in the survey, the fact is that for each EUR subsidised under the Arts Decree, the organisations receive half a EUR from different types of subsidies and one EUR from other revenue. The Flemish subsidy convinces other governments in the decision to co-subsidise organisations (20% of income). Thanks to the Flemish subsidy these organisations are able to generate a substantial amount of extra income through economic operations (40% of income).
