The list of cultural institutions is included in 7.3.

In 2013, the General Affairs of Culture were granting a budget with several separate programmes:

  • cultural centres,
  • "Various initiatives and interventions", with essentially the grant of multidisciplinary operators or operators in digital arts,
  • the programme "Subsistence" dedicated to the non-commercial sector and to the operating costs for the buildings (in particular the cultural center Marcel Hicter, near Namur).
