* A survey of the Association of French Regions indicates that the cultural expenditure of the regions in 2012 reached 706 million EUR (cf. http://www.arf.asso.fr/observatoire-des-politiques-regionales/observatoire-des-politiques-regionales-autres).
In 2014, the General Inspection of Cultural Affairs delivered two reports that analyse the financial interventions and cultural policies at regional level:
- http://www.culturecommunication.gouv.fr/Ressources/Rapports/Analyse-des-interventions-financieres-et-des-politiques-culturelles-en-region-Phase-1; and
The reports show that the total amount of expenditure from the Ministry, and its affiliated operators in the regions, is almost 3.8 billion EUR. Among the regions, the Île-de-France receives 66% of the whole intervention credits, due in particular to the concentration in Paris of most of the cultural public bodies and institutions, of the associations and structures with national scope, of the central ministerial administration, etc.
