Norway/ 2. General objectives and principles of cultural policy  

2.3 Cultural policy objectives

The main objectives of the Norwegian cultural policy are to promote:

  • artistic quality and innovation;
  • the preservation and security of the cultural heritage, including the Norwegian language;
  • the dissemination of rich and diverse cultural offers to the entire population, geographically decentralised; and
  • the promotion of a civil- and voluntary sector.

The objectives of Norwegian cultural policy generally remain stable in character, and there are few controversies about these objectives in public debates.
